I thought I would have a crack at painting a sel-portrait. One of the artists that I admire greatly was Rembrandt and he did a lot of self-portraits. It turned out to be quite difficult. Having a low resolution image to start with didn’t help and then there was my inexperience. Well at least I can say I had a crack at it and learnt along the way.

The story behind Self Portrait 2002

I painted my first self-portrait in 2002 from a very low-resolution image. The camera I had at the time was only capable of capturing a 640x480px image.
