Self Portrait With Headphones

6 x 8"
oil on canvas on panel
Price on Request

Another small self-portrait. I like to keep doing these periodically, just to see how they evolve over time, and stylistically according to my mood on the day. When I paint myself with my glasses on, I like to leave the eyes very sketchy and suggested. I also left the glasses very sketchy in this piece. What I was most interested in was the backlighting - how the light was hitting my shoulders and outlining my face, but not actually creating any highlights on the features.
