Self Portrait

"Self Portrait" 30 x 20" oil on canvas. 
I am calling this done, mostly because I am tired of looking at it!
This was definitely one of the hardest paintings I've attempted. A self portrait is a constant battle that in the end you can't really be satisfied so much with the picture, but the challenge is an extraordinary learning experience.

Oil Selfie - © Christopher Greco

"Oil Selfie"
16x12 oil on canvas.
I have wanted to try a self portrait for awhile. This is my warm up painting. I found a crappy barn picture that I painted in Connecticut 20 years ago and recycled the canvas. I hope to do a couple more quick ones to get used to looking/painting my face and work out a more interesting concept and design.
The step by step photos help me see some of the more obvious flaws as I am working. The photos are approximately 15-20 minutes apart.
"Self Portrait Sketch"
12x9" oil on canvas panel.
This is the basic design for the self portrait I am working on.
