Quick Selfie

Forget every bad thing I said about painting, we're mates again. I suspect it's all this life drawing I've been doing but I felt compelled to wet my paint brushes again. I thought I'd knock up a quick self portrait so I dug out a mirror and set it up on an easel beside me. This is a smaller canvas, 40x30 cm, completed over two sessions about an hour and a half each. I reckon there's about as much fussing around as there is painting in that time but all up I think it's a good likeness, done fairly quickly.

  2. My drawing tutor warned against staring at oneself too intently. Else your subject looks like a crazy person. I remembered her advice after I'd finished painting.
