Self Portrait in oil [11”x14”]

self portrait may 16, 2011

I painted this on Monday at my oil class…  just me, a mirror, and 5 colors of paint.  The overhead light is not attractive – the shadow of my glasses is quite awful but the exercise was to paint the shapes and values that one sees.  I think I kind of got a likeness at least and the light/dark areas on the mouth and chin are definitely working to describe the contours of my face. Cheers!
