  2. Hello, I wanted to know how big are your selfs portraits(?cmx?cm). I’m in an art school in France and we have to make a self portrait based on artists’ self-portraits, with your technics, the size etc..
    Thanks !

    • Tanguy, thank you for your interest. My self-portraits are all different sizes. Good luck with the project. I’m honored you have chosen to base your self-portrait on mine. I love doing them, that’s what they all have in common. Good luck, and please share the result. Merci.

    • Vicaire,
      How are you? Did you make your self-portrait based on my self-portrait? I’m curious to see it. Also, I’m curious to learn how you found my work.
      Merci,
      Isaac

  3. Dear Isaac
    Im Sowmya from India. I have just started to learn art, rather enjoy it with a deeper appreciation and sensitivity. When I take breaks at work, I try to make it meaningful by working with lines or colors to keep the practice going. Recently, I bought a small box of oil pastels to try the medium. My friend with whom I share my doodles and sketches directed me to your site. Im glad I found you. I plan to attempt your self portrait because of the clear lines and expressions, which I feel as a beginner gives me some measure of confidence to intrepret it in my unskilled hands.
