Portrait Project

Self Portrait
Oil on Canvas
14" x 11"

This is my first attempt at a self portrait. I am doing it in conjunction with a project with the Portland Plein Air & Studio Painters. About 20 of us have paired up. Each person is to do a self portrait and a portrait of their painting partner. I have done portraits of people before but have always shied away from doing one of myself. Now I wish I had done it when I was younger and less "character lines". It is really difficult to be objective. I'm open for constructive critiques.
