Self-Portrait

Daniel • Age 9

This is a self-portrait inspired by the style of the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani who was famous for painting portraits of people with long necks and faces. I love Modigliani's style of painting long heads and necks. I used oil pastels to create my self-portrait. My face, neck and nose are very long. The reason why I love the picture is that it is a picture of me! I am wearing my favourite hoodie. Oil pastels are my favourite medium to work with. I like the way they move quickly across the page and I love their really bright colours. Creating art makes me feel really happy and proud of myself. I love looking at my pictures afterwards. They make me feel really happy!
