Staring into the mirror and painting oneself is a job and a half. I find self-portraits the hardest.  The subject keeps moving and I as an artist keeps chasing.  Also, the mirror inverts your features, so no matter how hard you try it will be a little off.  However, I am very pleased at the likeness of this.  My biggest critiques,…, my children approve of this. So I am happy, of the time well spent.  Any and all critique are welcome… :) 

This a study in monochrome, done using Transparent oxide brown and Gamsol.
