The person you see in this painting isn’t just any one, it’s me! This is my self-portrait, only in thermal mode. In this painting, my teacher printed a thermal picture of me and I painted it. This painting for me was very easy. First, I sketched it. Then, I painted it. Finally, I filled in some blank spaces and added the finishing touches. We selected the red background because it gives the feel that I am coming out of fire. My teacher, Ms. Sandra Donnelly, guided me through this painting by discussing how to paint hair, show light effects, brush strokes, face details, and color scheme. She always taught a very important thing that I have to have clean brush while changing colors. I am very thankful to her. I did this painting in February 2013. I hope liked this painting as much as I liked painting it.
