Self-Portrait, First Washes
This photo shows the beginning stage of the self-portrait. It is always a chance that a painting may or may not turn out as one would like. I find each aspect of painting interesting and challenging, from deciding where to place which color, changing a shape, transitioning from warm colors to cool, slowly building values, while trying to model the features to actually resemble the subject. So if the painting turns out as I would like, that is just the added bonus.
