Artists have a wide range of subjects to choose from. They can use a pair of dirty shoes to accentuate a rugged terrain. A busy street can be their outlet for expressing what’s really going on inside their minds. That’s the beauty of Art.
One of the most intriguing subjects for artists to paint is that of individuals, the self portrait. Artists have a unique way of interpreting things. Hand painted portrait art give us a fresh look at the individual. Because self portraits are such a personal area, they are one of the most important subjects in the world of Visual Arts.
By definition, self-portraits are masterpieces typically drawn or painted from a reflection in the mirror. If you’re an aspiring artist don’t you think it’s too cumbersome to look back and forth to and fro the mirror and your canvass? The angle and the direction would even make your work too taxing. Not to mention how the portrait would turn out if you didn't have the artistic skills :)
Before the camera was invented, artists would work hard to preserve the image of a person. Sitting for a self-portrait was a lengthy process. It was also an expensive way of preserving a face in the history books. But the feeling of completeness that a self portrait gives to its owner makes most well-to-do individuals to do it anyway. Oftentimes, the self portrait would just show the face up to the shoulders of the subject. But sometimes, it also includes few objects or meaningful landscapes in the background thus adding more ‘life’ to it.
