Portrait Paintings by Aleksandra Janekovic Sribar.
I am an self taught artist from Zagreb, Croatia.
My art style are portraits which are drawn using pencil or dry crayon.
I chose to draw portraits because I’ve always considered portraits to be most challenging form to recreate properly. Human emotion is the finishing touch which can make a portrait lifelike or lifeless. That’s why I watch interviews of celebrities which I draw, from which I can try to capture emotions which I later try to convey in my portraits. I focus on eyes and areas around the eyes – because eyes are the mirror of the soul.
