Artist's Description

A self-portrait with another self-portrait and my last painting as a background.

Foreground: Nude, pastel drawing on watercolor paper, private collection Europe
Background: YouMe, oil on canvas, private collection Australia

I reluctantly did this self-portrait, it was one of the compulsory themes for my final exam in Portraiture Photography. My teacher told us to come with something creative and interesting, and gave us some amazing examples from the previous years. I left this till the last moment because nothing interesting crossed my mind. In the end I took my last drawing for Chris Orchard’s life drawing class and my last painting and did this. I used the natural light which was coming from the balcony from my right side. The image wasn’t “photoshoped”.
Finally when I got up there in front to talk about my work, I was surprised to see that this work was everyone’s favorite. It was the least prepared of all my works. It was selected to be published on the school website, and not long after, The Advertiser news paper, called me to publish it. My agent printed it on a large canvas, which was sold during South Australian Living Artists Festival.
