Freehand from a photo, and from life.

This is based on Amedeo Modigliani’s early painting Head of a Young Woman, 1908. She has both a normal neck and actual eyeballs! To make it a self-portrait, I made the eyes blue and added the pom-pom from my hat.

This is part of my Daily Portrait Project, in which I make a non-photographic image of myself every day and post it on the web. This series of self-portraits can be viewed in it’s entirety at studiojuliakay.com/portraitproject.
