Did this portrait to prove to myself that I could still paint in colour. Prior to this one, I'd toiled for hours on a coloured portrait of myself that just wasn't working. (That comment I made on "Yue Yee the Red Cap Oranda" Post about battles between me and the paint rings so true for that failed painting.)

My only disappointment in this painting is my Dad's comment on how he thought the top half looked like Robert Pattinson in Twilight before I'd finished it. *Shudders violently*
Let's just say I'm glad he told me after I'd already fixed the majority of the problem. Come on! I like my new hair cut, and it's so cruel to compare me to HIM! (Sorry, but I'm not a fan.)
