  • An excellent portrait, Margaret, with great character and fortitude. It must be that concentration. *smile*

    I feel as though I've just been caught stealing the biscuits. LOL

  • That’s excellent Margaret. I’ve given up on it’s put me off painting, not your portrait, mine!

  • This is very good for 20mins! Lovely colours too.

  • Thank you Dennis :)

    Thank you Bri :) Yup, I do look a bit dour!

    Thank you Fiona :) Don't let it put you off painting, Fiona! I find self-portraits hard but perseverance has paid off (at least a bit) - the last 2 were (as my husband said) scary! but he likes this one.

    Thank you Liezel :)

  • Good character in this - it’s really difficult I’ve found - i have to be in the mood. I started quite promisingly last week to have a go but by lunch time I had become an alien!! Will try again !!

  • Natural with great shadowing Margaret.

  • Thank you Rachel :) One of my recent ones (torn up and not posted!) - which was mixed media including collage using magazine/newspaper - apparently made me look like a cyborg - that was probably the text heading down my cheek - not a good look! I'm sure a future effort will be successful - hope you enjoy trying out the self portrait anyway. You might be interested in this YouTube video from Aine Divine (which was what got me doing self-portraits in the first place) -

  • They aren't so easy in watercolour, nicely portrayed though Margaret.
