I did learn a couple things about my self-portrait attempt. 1. I need darker shades of flesh tone paints. 2. I should practice making curly hair. This is the kind of hair I wanted when I was in high school but now as an adult I'm quite happy with my au natural curly hair.
When it comes to self-portraits Frida is undoubtedly the best. Her art SCREAMED! It hollered PAIN! PASSION! SORROW! BASTARD!
