This is the third in the selfie series in which I asked friends (and my wife, whom I also count as friend) to take pictures of themselves. Having worked with models for years, I was relieved to step all the way back from pose selection. My only request, besides using the “selfie” format, was that they wear no top, so that there would be some uniformity in to the images.
I was so curious to see how these individuals would present themselves when they knew their photographs would be used in a painting, but that they had full control over their image. My only job was to choose the final three images for painting.
For more information on my process, please take a look at my previous two posts. And, as always, more paintings can be seen at amrfineart.com.
