Self Portrait #3
Acrylic on Canvas
This portrait was an experiment in loosening up and letting the brush strokes show. It didn’t look very promising at first, but I persisted. In hindsight, the colors I mixed were too brown/green tinted and the result looks a bit muddled. I should have started with “normal” skin tones and adjusted their hues more subtly from there. Also, the overall values of the skin tones are too dark. I learned a lot of good lessons from this one and plan to apply them to the next painting.
