You have beautiful work - love the self portrait. I'm a beginner and have just attempted my first portrait so I'm appreciating what goes into a painting more now!

MIke Calderon 31 Aug 2007

It doesn't look like the self-portrait is too much of a challenge to you! I think you nailed you! Beautiful! :)

Beautiful subject and portrait.

Gautam Thoidingjam 03 Jul 2007

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

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)

Ed Fairburn 11 Apr 2007

Great piece... really crisp. I love that about watercolour. And it lookds exactly like you!

Faith Puleston 27 Mar 2007

Beautiful, Kerra.

irish rozario 27 Mar 2007

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

Linda King 27 Mar 2007

What an amazing job you have done on this, Kerra. It looks exactly like your pic. You're such a pretty girl.

Artist Reply: Wow, Linda---I'm quite flattered. (smiling) Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me feedback on this self-portrait. I appreciate it! :) Hope your day goes great! -Kerra

poison jurado 26 Mar 2007

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

Bev Chudey 26 Mar 2007

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

stephanie atlee 15 Mar 2007

You are quite beautiful...this is very well done.

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 :)

Albert Spiller 14 Mar 2007

very nice painting and beautiful face....nice usage of watercolor too

Randy Kroll 19 Feb 2007

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

Klaudia Warwel 19 Feb 2007

wonderful & staggering artwork. Perfect!

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

Jacqueline Bishop 18 Feb 2007
