Self Portrait update.

How quickly things can build. Since last week I have had two sessions at different times of the day. The best light is at 5pm but I’m almost always cooking for the family then. Due to a haircut (I was bored and have clippers) there needed to be a change in the silhouette. According to friends and family, my nose is too big (on the painting).

The palette was enlarged with some garish lime green. This joins Titanium and mixing white, Windsor Blue, Indian red, Paynes grey and Translucent yellow ochre.

I like the amount of paint accumulated over time on the easel.

The last image is me heightening the colours in photoshop. In my mind it starts to look like a late period Van Gogh, the amping up of intensity is interesting. A good test for future painting.
