One Hour Self-Portrait

I know everyone is probably getting extremely tired of these self-portraits, but I think I'm learning a lot from them. I bought a bunch of Fredrix canvas panels that were inexpensive, and so far absolutely hate the coarse weave. So I tried adding another layer of gesso to smooth it out some. This is one. I like it better.

9" x 12", oil

One hour? I am sooo impressed! This is one of your best. And, I am not tired of your self portraits. I'm sure you are learning a lot and nice that you share in that process. I wish I could do a self portrait!

Thanks Linda. Oh, but you can do one. Just pick up those brushes and get to work!
