Paintings - filling in - 2

The next painting in my filling in series.

This is a self portrait from photograph. I wanted to get a strong light/dark contrast going, witt strong brush strokes rather than a smooth blended effect. I am happy with the result. This was done in august/september of this year. ( a bit of a glare at top of photo will have to redo)

Self portrait - oil on canvas 40cm x 50 cm

Really terrific. Love the intensity of the expression, and the close cropping. Great work, and fun to see the progression, too.

Hi Pete,
I really enjoy your paintings here. This self portrait and your most recent landscapes are my favorites. Thanks for comments on my small egg painting. Yes I did crack an egg there to paint from life:-).
