Self Portrait

Gave it my best shot, with a light set up to the left,trying to see the value changes, then put color in. This was the challenge from The Daily Paintworks. I've done several self portraits but this probably comes the closest to being me. My friend said the nostrils aren't right, and I said, you've never seen my nostrils...she's 6' tall,lol.Anyway, I keep in mind this is about learning, growing, not taking myself so seriously, and accepting where I'm at today. Happy Mothers' Day!

  2. Thanks Dawn, it is so hard to stare at yourself in the mirror then try to paint what you see!

  3. Nice job Anne! Self portraits are difficult. The flesh and hair colors/tones are really great.
