Artist Reply: Wow, Olga, (really blushing)--thanks! The great thing with watercolor is that we can leave out the flaws we don't like, right? ha ha ha Thanks so for the wondeful feedback--I really appreciate it. :) -Kerra
Looks awesome. Doen't look like a first rimer. Great, it's very nicely done. Love to see more of your self portrait.
Artist Reply: HI, Gautam! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such detailed feedback on my self-portrait. Yes-it's true-that's a first for me. It's so strange to paint oneself--I kept thinking, "is that really me?" weird. Anyway, thanks for the feedback! :) -Kerra
Charming, delightfully charming ... what did you do to your smile? so very captivating..stunning work ... you have done justice to your face ... you have captured the freshness of the morning breeze here .. oh this is truly amazing ...
Artist Reply: Hi, Elf! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on this self-portrait, (my first in watercolor)---I do have to ask though--why all the question marks???? :) I'm off to check out your portfolio. -Kerra
Artist Reply: Hi, there, Mark! Thanks so much for the compliment on my self-portrait--I appreciate your feedback! Hope your day goes wonderful. :) -Kerra

Hey, I am an amateur as far as drawing is concerned. I bet it's really difficult to make a self-portrait. Can you please share with the world how much time you took to make this ? - Anil (P.S.: It's really nice)
i agree! it looks exactly like your photo! you're such an amazing artist miss kerra ^_^
Artist Reply: Hi, Irish! Hmm...the beauty of painting is deciding what to leave out--what to put in, etc. In portraits that's an even better idea--leave out what you don't want in! LOL This was my first self-portrait--what a strange thing to paint yourself. Funny to see yourself in such close-up details. :) -Kerra
wow! that's amazing! i've only drawn a cartoon version of myself...lol...your really good!
Artist Reply: Hi, there, Poison! :) Thanks so much for your very encouraging comment on my self-portrait. This was a first for me---but have the circle, eyes and such from my little cartoon versions over the years as prep-work. LOL Hope your day goes great! -Kerra
Great self portrait! I have never tried to paint myself.
Artist Reply: Hey, there, Bev! Thanks so much for your very kind comment on my self-portrait. This was the first time I've ever painted myself--what a strange feeling to see yoruself like that. :) I'm on my way to check out your portfolio--hope your day goes great! :) -Kerra
Artist Reply: Wow, Stephanie---I don't know what to say. Beautiful wouldn't be the word I would choose I assure you...getting to 'leave out' what I didn't want included was a big advantage. :) Hope your day goes great! -Kerra :)
the subject of this piece is just stunning and uv captured her beauty perfect fab kerra so very well done and tnxs for allowing me the pleasure of viewing as im only new here im still navigating my way around everybody and it is simply great to c such talented artists ar work xxxxxxxxxxx
Beautiful self portrait Kerra! Very well done! Of course it helps when you have a nice model to work from :)
Artist Reply: Wow, Randy! Thanks! I wouldn't ever consider myself a 'nice model', of course--the agony over how detailed to go was a big question on this one, (let's see here...leave out this flaw or keep? LOL) Hope your day goes great! Thanks again for your kind comment. :) -Kerra
Artist Reply: Wow, Klaudia---'perfect'?! LOL---I can't help but giggle on this end as I went over and over this piece 'fixing' this and that....until I thought my eyes would go buggy and then here you are giving me this feedback. (smiling) Thanks so very much. It's so WEIRD painting yourself--starring at your own image is almost like an out of body experience..."does my nose really LOOK like that? Is THAT the way my eye is shaped?" It's almost comical in the making. Anyway, wanted to thank you for your compliment and time. I appreciate it! Hope your day goes great! -Kerra
Kerra, This is FLIPPEN REVERENT!!! Museum Quality !! You should be in galleries every were. I dont think I have ever seen a self portrait so life like. You have done it abosolutely done. How do you ever out do yourself after this! That is a challange - can't wait to see the result. An artist of the times - that how your bio should start off !!!! Great job.
Artist Reply: Rita--what a nice thing to say. Thank you so much for taking the time to review this piece. What a weird thing to paint yourself--it's almost an 'out of body' experience. LOL Hope your day goes GREAT! -Kerra

Artist Reply: Thanks so much, Randy, for your nice comment! It is a whole new experience looking at yourself for so long--almost an 'out of body' type of experience! LOL Hope your day goes GREAT! -Kerra
Artist Reply: Hey, there, Jerry! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop and leave a comment on this self-portrait. What a strange experience looking at yourself for so long--whew! :) Hope your day goes GREAT! -Kerra
Artist Reply: Jennifer--what a nice thing to say! :) Thanks so much--this one was a real 'trial' for me as I've never spent so much time studying myself--weird perspecitve to tackle. Hope your day goes great--you made mine. -Kerra
