Self Portrait revisited [oil, 12”x9”]

self portrait may 26, 2011 I had another go at this self-portrait today.  I used the same canvas but set up the lights differently this time so that I could eliminate that awful shadow from my glasses.  I also worked at restating the neck, which had been too short [for me] and decided to attempt a more cheerful, less concentrated and grumpy, expression.  I like it better now although it might be a bit too yellow still.  It’s better than looking bruised as I did on May 16th.  Here’s the before picture so you can see the difference.  Cheerio!
