Oil on Board, 6 x 6 inches
Last night, I watched an excellent oil painting demo by Kevin Feary. He painted a very strong piece, live, right in front of a group of artists. He did everything right, from bringing his own additional lighting to capturing the model's likeness well before he even painted the eyes!
Kevin inspired me.
I've been wanting to do a self portrait for many years now. But I just didn't think I could do it. Well yippee! Today I painted my portrait. I'm ecstatic. I need to fess up to say, that my real self doesn't look as colorful as my painting does, but hey, I've got the licence...artist licence.
