A Self Portrait

This is the progression of a self portrait from observation. I used a mirror to paint myself and that was quite an unusual task. It's strange to look at yourself for so many hours and concentrate on the smallest details of your face. It was an interesting exercise. The end result was a moody almost surreal depiction of myself. I was told I looked like a mermaid. Cool!
