Small 5″ x 7″ Self Portrait

by on Jul.23, 2008, under General, Work In Progress

Over the weekend I had a go at a small self portait. Using oils on a 5×7 inch canvas board. Overall I’m quite pleased with it. I did a quick burnt Sienna and Burnt umber mix underpainting in acrylic and painted the colour in Oils.

This is only the second oil painting I have done since I left art college over 10 years ago, so not too bad. Need to practice small details so I can work better on the eyes and mouth where my lack of confidence leaves quite a lot to be desired.

The larger image is aprox actual size on my monitor.

Above is the burnt umber/sienna underpainting and finished piece side by side.
