Bearded Self-portrait

  • on Saturday, June 04, 2011
  • In the first term in autumn we did self portraits. Mine looked cool, but also like a bluish zombie-maria, and I never finished it. After a few months we returned to the theme, but this time we picked an attribute to add to the portrait. Me being a slightly mental fan of beards took the opportunity to get one. I've now come to understand that beards are hard to paint. Where the beard grows out of the skin in particular. Specially if your reference is yourself with a fake beard hoovering a few mm over the skin. But it was great frickin' fun.

    I think it looks a bit like a serious Irish leprechaun.
