Post Workshop and getting back into the swing of studies, sketches and learning, I thought I’d push myself before my 29th birthday this Saturday to do something that I’ve never done before. In the entire time that I have been pursuing art, I have never drawn or painted a self portrait. Partially for the challenge and partially for posterity, I thought I’d have a crack at painting one. My buddy Graham had taken a couple of interesting photos last time we were sat over the Pac-Man table at the pub that I used as reference. It was a strange experience, trying to critically look at an analyze my own face, but I suppose that that is the intended challenge of it! The lighting was a lot of fun to play with, and was interesting to study with latest round of colour theory learning sinking in.
