So I'm pretty much done with this self portrait, but I still have to paint the sides of the canvas. There were lights on either side of the minor, but the canvas, or framing I chose isn't large enough to show them. So rather than do another posting where the only thing that's changed is something you can't see, I consider this done.
One thing that I haven't mentioned with this painting is that I worked from a B&W photograph instead of color, just to see how it would work out. I have such a vivid memory of what the colors of my clothing and the bathroom were, I figured it would be a fun exercise. I liked doing it so much that I'm going to try it on my next painting as well.
