Self portrait

nor

Self portrait in oils. Completed this over the course of a weekend. I referenced a book I own – oil painters bible – to get the skin tones, although I painted it too dark. I used the shadow tone as the base colour, which I felt was nearer to the actual skin tone than the one suggested in the book. Very pleased with the result
