Eager not to loose momentum having struggled with chinatown..... I looked at my undone projects,

10 months ago I joined the first self portrait project :D

Thisafternoon I painted it. Stright onto the paper, no drawing, no mother washes.... no nothing............ tried to keep transparent this time.......

Approx 8 x 10

Here it is as loaded in project........put it here cos I wanted to share it with this forum :D

You have done a fantastic job, I still haven`t tried a self portrait, maybe one day, before I get too old I don`t fancy having to paint lots of wrinkles:evil:

Maddie, Gia.......... thanks and for the suggestions, but Ive still got Purple passion, Mountains and Lakes and Yorkshire Dales undone :D But you never know. We'll see what takes my fancy............watch this space :D

Maybe i'll paint a portrait in purple............ better be an oldie then would suit the poem too. Is double projecting cheating?

Good job Jaytee. You have gotten an amazing likeness, especially considering that you didn't draw first.

This is absolutely amazing. Wonderful likeness. With a talent like this is a crime that you haven't been painting.

thank you so very much, all of you................this really was the boost I badly needed to my flagging confidence :D I appreciate you all taking the time to view and reply.

Tag..........I was concentrating on not letting my tongue hang out while concentrating :D you want a smile? Here is one -- :) --

JoAnn............ does that make ME the criminal :D

Uschi........ I built the painting up using negative shapes at the begining................only after it was blocked in did I start thinking about the detail.

You did amazingly good job. I just started the Drawing on the right side of the brain & they have you draw a self portrait.

Mine was a round circle with dots for eyes & circles for glasses. Looks like a stick figure picture. Now you can see why I am not in the portrait exchange.

Hey it is good to have a face to the name of people on the daily wash.
