Self Portrait, Camera Close Up

I thought I would try a little portrait.
It is ever more clear to me that my dark values are not dark enough. I had to go back after a break and darken all the darks here - everything had the same weight. Wonder if I can retrain myself to see this the first time out - it is a problem in every painting.

  1. Great job, Jean!! I love the perspective you chose. From your photo I imagined you had dark hair and now I see white. At any rate, I think you should do more self portraits or portraits of others. This is really good!
