Self Portraits Can Be Fun

What can be more fun than creating a self portrait? Yeah sure there are lots of things that are more fun. For me, it's something I always go back to in my work. I do a couple of self portraits every year. I find it satisfying. Maybe it's like doing graffiti. Leaving my mark. So people know that I am here.

Anyway, this is a piece I started yesterday. It's still in progress. What you see here is the grisaille with a glaze of Cyprus burnt umber. Needs several more glazes...some flesh tones, some cool colors in the shadows...
