Progress Report and a Artsy Self Portrait
I finished the composition for this week's IF of "save", and I will soon be giving the image life and breath, but I spent most of today out in the garden. Tonight I will do a burnt sienna wash over the painting with oils and pull out the highlights and values of the painting before I begin. I want to take a new approach to this painting. I love experimenting.
Oh..and I added a little self portrait I took of myself. Call me vain, but I like taking pictures of myself. Who doesn't? Mostly because I know what angle to get myself at to look the most dramatic or whatever. I like this one because it shows a side of me that is playful and secretive in my own little world. I also like to play with my camera, and I'm usually the most readily available for subject matter.
