Time travel portraits
Imagine yourself in the world of your favourite artist.
Time-Travel through the centuries and re-imagine yourself like you’ve never been drawn before.
Ask yourself why they painted like they did. Why did they develop their specific style, or choose the colours they did. Why did they use their kind of brush marks, or make, bright colourful images, dark and moody paintings, or rough, energy-fuelled marks, daubs and graffiti?
Take a selfie of yourself on your phone or sit in front of a mirror. Choose one of your favourite paintings that contain a portrait of a sitter. Now imagine that sitter is you.
Create a drawing or painting of yourself in that imagined world in the style of your chosen artist.
We can’t experience what your chosen artist experienced – but we can draw ourselves into other worlds and other times. Enjoy your time travel.
