Emma Watson's Self-Portrait

A personal painting done by Watson herself was first described in the Vogue US 2011 article ''Emma Watson's New Day'' by editor Amanda Foreman, who was invited to the actress' London home to complete an interview. Somehow, a photo of the painting made it online recently, which can be compared to the article excerpts.

Emma ignores the stares and continues to chat animatedly about Miró's willingness to take risks with his art. An avid painter herself—''I love it and have a need to do it''—she can talk eloquently about every picture on the wall.

She gives me a quizzical look that clearly says, ''Can I trust you?'' Taking a deep breath, she invites me back to her house (under strict instructions not to reveal much about it) so that we can talk without fear of interruption...


As Emma takes me on a tour of her house, the extraordinary depth and breadth to her talents become obvious. Every room is framed around a beautiful artifact—a piece of furniture or fabric picked up at a flea market in Paris or Los Angeles—and her artworks show that she can both paint and draw exquisitely. One picture stands out: It is a self-portrait of Emma holding a camera. The lens is aimed menacingly at the viewer, like the barrel of a gun, a neat illustration of what we had just experienced at the Tate.

I will be honest: I actually don't think she's that bad, not bad at all. This isn't my favourite style of art, but she has apparent skills as a hobbyist who paints for herself. Admittedly, I've seen worse. And it's amazing how she got her proportions pat down; I know I suck 100% at self-portraits for this very reason. Anyhow...
