Title: Self Portrait
Media: Acrylic on cardboard shirtbox lid
Painting and drawing is something I've done since I was little. My materials consisted of very basic acrylic paints and a set of beloved Derwent colouring pencils. This painting was done on the lid of a shirtbox. My exposure to art and artists was mainly confined to Picasso and Van Gogh hence the self-portrait in blue. I would have been about 10 years old when I painted this with my hair still in plaits and a headband.
