Self Portrait 4-14

self portrat german america male blue eyes blond hair eagle nose

To be honest. after the last couple blunders, I was getting burned out and discouraged with my portraits. After seeing some of Mary-Q’s self portraits, It encouraged me to continue doing daily portraits. I think the secret to keep being motivated is to experiment with different techniques. I just used a solid round brush. that’s it. No smudging, no custom brushes, no preliminary drawing. It’s almost like less was more and I was able to focus better on the values. I spent about 45 minutes painting this.
