Self Portrait (# 3?)

I've been painting a lot of landscape so I thought I would change it up a bit for myself and paint me again. The model is always available! I used a mirror at my drafting table station. My hair looked brown to me in the light--but that is wishful thinking as it is pretty much gray. The brown hair makes me look younger though! I didn't correct it on purpose--! My last self portrait was way too frumpy and this one is too beautified. I'll keep trying.

The portrait looks like a success to me. I can definitely see you in there. Love your color selections...real life color doesn't count...i.e. hair color.
