Self Portrait

I finally took the leap, painting the inevitable - a self portrait 😃. This was painted rather quickly and loosely, of course.

Re: Self Portrait

Excellent portrait. I love the subdued colours set off by the blue highlights. Chapeau!

Re: Self Portrait

Wow- I love the subtle handling of the colours- just the right amount of information. You certainly have a deft hand.

It is a good portrait and the background gives life to the face.

Re: Self Portrait

Very good self portrait , Love the soft colors used on it. And I really like
the abstract way you dealt with your collar. Is this watercolor and pastels?

Re: Self Portrait

Thank you, L Skyler and Joan, for taking time to comment! I appreciate your encouragement

Joan, I only used pastel, but I used a wet brush in places
