Thank you Paul! I am at the moment on a mission to ‘understand’ colour. I could play with my portrait because there was no pressure about the sitter’s opinion…
This just glows and radiates with color & light. Wonderful for me & an instant fave!

love the radiance, and color combination good job I know self portraits are tough to do… funny how other people’s portrait are easy and fun to paint…
Hi Reynaldo, this one was both tough and liberating. Tough for obvious reasons and liberating because I could play with colour without worrying what the sitter would think!
Such a compelling gaze. Beautiful range of colors in your face as well.
I appreciate the fact that you like the colour – to me this one was the first portrait where I explored colour the way I wanted to!
Beautiful job with the light and skin tones. Pretty eyes.A portrait to be proud of!
