Artist: Pieter Lategan
Title: Self Portrait 2020 March
Medium: A4 Paper, Pencil HB, B2
This is a self-portrait of my self. I took this picture one morning early in 2018. I remember I did not sleep that night.
So a little about me, I matriculated at Erasmus High School in Bronkhorstspruit in Gauteng. I left and work as a clerk at the Department of Education and Training. This was in the apartheid time, the black people had their own school department. After that, I went to the army and went to study teaching. My main subject was art.
So what do I think about my work?
The left-hand side looks a bit out of the portion. I struggle with my nose but I think the eyes are ok, but also there can be more work spending. I personally feel I am not ready to do portraits for people. This is my thought to draw people at the end and paint them. Practice practice is the keyword.
