26th Birthday Self Portrait-Painting of Me For Me

I tried to create a painting of my face using watercolor and it’s weird. It was my 26th birthday last November 19 and I wanted to create a self portrait. It’s weird that I have to look at my freaky face picture reference all the time. I was really having fun at first. Then I got frustrated as I’m working on the colors. The end result is epic, I can’t stop laughing. Fail. It looked like I was on drugs or something. Pat on the back though. Good job, self, good job for trying.Ena Beleno 26th Birthday Self Portrait

Let’s take a look at the reference and the painting side by side. Well, it’s not that bad. Hahahaha

So it’s decided, every birthday I’ll make a self portrait as a gift to myself. Reminding how my freaky face looks like as interpreted by my very own hands.
