Today’s Art (13th December 2016)

Well, I was in the mood for painting something a bit more “realistic” today. So, I ended up making this self-portrait that was based on a photo from last year.

This painting required quite a bit of digital editing after I scanned it, mostly because I messed up the shading in the original (eg: in the original, the shadows on my neck were too large and the shading on my right cheek looked more like a bruise than a shadow) and because the original background didn’t look quite as good as I’d hoped.

As usual, this painting is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
