Self Portrait

i just finished , or I should say stopped working on my self portrait that I had to do for my Life Painting class with Carolyn Pyfrom as my outside assignment. It's mostly dome with the palette knife on the face and and by, then I'd go back and hit it with the brush. It's 18 x 22 in oil. I used a little walnut oil to help the drying time.

Now onto the sculpture...

As always.I love the way you fill the shadows with colour, in the t-shirt, under the chin... Great colour sense in the relation between background and foreground too, though I wouldn't know how to articulate what's 'right' about it; maybe that was just the clour of the wall and your t-shirt!.
