'Self-Portrait August 2012'

oil on board
6" x 6"

This is the smallest portrait I have ever attempted and it went better than I expected. By the way, I'm not always so glum! It's the concentration! The good thing about self-portraits is that you don't have to worry about whether the sitter is happy with the outcome, you can paint the truth warts and all! And another advantage is that the sitter is always available when the artist is! At the moment I'm thinking that I might have to darken the left side of the face a little more but I will look at it again tomorrow morning. For now, it's time for pasta!
