Self Portrait: Fire by LynnTV Self Portrait: Fire by LynnTV
This painting is from my Human Portrait painting class. The assignment was paint four portraits of ourselve with a dialouge between all 4. My dialouge turned into more of a theme, and I went with the 4 notable elements (earth, air, fire, water). Originally, I was going to have one face being punched and the others reacting. I wish I had done that now, but I still like this theme.

This is my fire portrait. When I was deciding the colors, I wanted them to be so intense to cause a retinal burn in the eye. I'm not sure if I achieved this but, I still like the overall palette and intensity I chose. Of all 4 of my paintings, this is my least liked one because of my stupid glasses. I thought it would be fun to paint them, but no. I was sadly wrong. I thought they would push a fierce fiery expression.

(Why! Why did I add the glasses. >---:iconcutecryplz:
