Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait, Acrylics, 8″ x 8″

First self-portrait in paint. That was kind of painful and a bit weird. I realized how complex my eye colour is.. blue-gray with green and even a touch of brown. Not that obvious to paint on an 8″ x 8″!

The skin looks a bit splotchy, I guess I got too used to paint animal fur! To be fair, my reference photo didn’t have much contrast and the light was pretty flat. I still wanted to use that photo, because I liked it and I needed a front view to complete our family portrait. Ross’ individual portrait is facing right and Cole’s is facing left.. so, the front view just made sense!

Animal next 🙂 À bientôt!
