Self Portrait by JW-Jeong Self Portrait by JW-Jeong
Can't believe that I haven't posted this one yet while I have been using its thumbnail for my profile pic.
It's my self-portrait, completed in mid 2011, painted with acrylic colours on 40 x 56cm wood.

You are most likely not going to see this comment but...
I was wondering out of curiosity if you are a self-taught artist?
This artwork is far beyond talents I have seen!

How do you create such soft forms?

In my opinion, your best work. Between the colors used in the face, the abstract, earthy background, and the position of the subject's face and shoulders, a strange feeling of solemn despair and longing is strongly conveyed.

You might not have intended that, but that's what I see :-P

I'm a sucker for traditional art, especially when it's not trying to be strictly photo realistic, although I enjoy both. I really like the angle you chose and the rough quality around the edges. It's emotive. And I covet your hat :).

What I find incredible is that this, from 2011, is a masterpiece. And your skills have gone past mastering! I like the way you put detail to what's important in the painting, and the feelings in your eyes you manage to do. I hope you one day will post a tutorial video on youtube :)
