Not much to say here. I think this is my first painted self portrait, I usually do this sort of thing in a sketchbook in pencil or ink. I’d been asked to produce a painted “selfie” for potential online art gallery so here’s what I knocked out. Its an oil painting but was done in a more watercolor treatment of the pigment, i.e. a series of color washes to define the form. And its pretty small from what I usually do with the brushes I work best with. But if there was any wonder what I look like, your question is answered.
