Self Portrait, acrylic polymer paint on pattern board
I am captivated by portraiture lately, and self-portraits in particular are floating my boat right now. It is a really fascinating process of analysis and introspection, and can provide amazing insight for the artist & the viewer alike as we tussle with the difference between what we see, what we want to see and what's going on behind the eyes.
What do you think of this one I painted today? I'll be interested to hear from those who know me (in real life) whether they think it's a decent likeness - the perception of others can be so different from how we see ourselves.
