Self Portrait

I did this self portrait in oil to be submitted for the juried show Mirror Mirror in Surrey. Sadly, it did not get chosen. It was an interesting exercise though, because it’s actually pretty big, 36″ x 24″. I wanted to try the big format, but I think I’ve found I prefer a smaller format. Oil, on canvas.

Portrait from Life Workshop

Today I finished my Portrait from life Workshop with Martinho Correia hosted by Lalita Hamill at Hamill Studios, it was great! Below is a gallery showing the steps it took to get to the finished painting, starting with the model and my drawings, then transferring the drawing to canvas, dead painting, first and second painting. I am pleased with my result, it was an awesome workshop! 16″ x 20″, Oil.
