Self portrait

6x6 oil on hardboard

Thought that I would try this from the photo that I sent in for the challenge.

Mark, what a great sense of light! and I love that you let it go while it was still loose. A really sweet job man!

Thanks. I didn't get the mouth at the right angle, the hightlight on the bridge of the nose spilled over to the dark side.

ok, but I dont even notice that. It just reads "great lighting". Doesn't go to show That if you get the colors right that a painting really doesnt need that much else (paraphrasing Hawthorne). The drawing or correctess of the shapes are not important compared to getting the color right. :)
