An acrylic self-portrait of artist Nina Masci with a blue background

Lonely Lazuline – Self-Portrait

Acrylic on canvas
18 in x 24 in

 I decided to really play with colour and expressive brushstrokes with this self-portrait. I chose this pose in particular because I feel it conveys that I’m kind of introverted, a little self-conscious, but at the same time I am really curious and passionate. To show this sense of passion I used bright, warm, expressive colours and brushstrokes. I’m also looking away from the viewer because I wanted to give the sense that I am curious, a bit of a day dreamer and spend a lot of time in my head.
