Love the glasses!!
Very honest painting. You make translating ambient light into paint look effortless.
Hello, I love your self-portraits, but you seem so serious. 1) are you a very serious person? 2) what kind of glasses are those? and 3) how do you keep self portraits so interesting without seeming self-absorbed? I love all the reflections and the "texturizing" of the skin. It is a really beautiful painting! Thanks for keeping it interesting!
The brushstrokes really sculpt the face.I appreciate the abstract side of the nostrils ( an " M " with two black triangles beneath).And what a high and terrifying concentration!
Look at that paint. Wow. Thanks.
Julian this is your best self-portrait yet...I tried to have it.... Good for you!!
