Brilliant! Who is this handsome beast?! Love it Julian. So much energy in the marks

Hi Julian,
This certainly captures the sense of a determined, hard-working man.
Thanks,
Naomi

Love it! So different from the last one. Do you ever use a palette knife????so nice to just wipe off and not have to wash brushes! Thanks as always, grace

That lilac next to the pale green on chin/neck .GENIUS!
Just fabulous( so boring to say it again!)

A very interesting self portrait, Julian. As I commented previously, you seem to be getting more colorful and bolder in your brush strokes. It is like you are transitioning. I enjoy the multitude of different colors in this one.

FANtabulous Julian as always!

Marvelous, wonderful, inspired, an inspiration. Thank you

Ever tried to get some locals to sit for you Julian? Your as good at faces as anyone now (at least your own).

features masterpices , superb !

A cracker ... the best one yet.

Dear Julian, an "in your face" self portrait, assertive, almost confrontational and very alpha male. A rugged face sculpted with vigorous slashes of dirty pink, terra verte and lavender violet, springing out of a Van Goghian ochre back ground. The familiar all seeing left eye boring into the spectator. The baseball cap adds a "don't mess with me" look! There is a very faint echo of one of Chardin's pastel self portrait, where he is looking out rather defiantly from under a brim. We better get used to the new Julian,he has passed a painterly mile stone!
