Angst in oil

Angst in oil - do I like it? Not really sure at this point. Wanting to go back and correct things with a small brush but this would defeat the point. Colours are not good in the image here.

New digital painting with Photoshop, I tried to be much looser in style rather than the usual. I might try this with oils on canvas.

The Beast

Self portrait which I did and entered in the 2014 BP Portrait Award.  Its the largest thing I've painted yet and took forever its 1.5 * 1m. It's quite unsettling painting yourself, particularly at this size. Stepping back an seeing a mirror image staring back at you is not the most enjoyable thing to do. Unsurprisingly it didn't get in and even "this year there were 2,377 entries and only 55 were selected for exhibition" didn't diminish the disappointment. But hey you've got to give it a go.
