I love the brush strokes and the shadowing. I have yet to attempt a self-portrait. Could you try something shiny and reflective again? Those fascinate me.
nice to "see" you again, julian. are you wearing the hat to look like the gaugin? or because of the weather or was it just a bad hair day? wish i could send you our "today" sunny, breezy, 80 degree beach weather. g.
I found the Gaugin after finishing the painting—the painting I had in mind when I started was a Chardin self portait in a turban. It is cold and very wet here and I can't think of another late May when I could have born to wear a hat!!
What a fabulous self-portrait, congratulations!
