Self Portrait in Profile

Self Portrait in Profile
Oil on canvas
20x28 inches

Had a real learning curve with this, portraits are tricky to get right and the head in profile can be trickier yet! Getting the shapes and angles right take a fair amount of observation. This one took a while as I waited for layers to dry inbetween painting sessions.

Pretty good work Ryan. Self portraits are hard to do. I think doing one in profile would make it much easier though. The first one I ever did was head on and boy I'm glad that painting dissapeared years ago! hahahaha.
Nice work!

Tricky part of profile for self portrait is that you can't see yourself as you're looking the wrong way!
