Another in the self-portrait series. This one reflects a moment of angst, appropriate to experimenting with the drama of harsh lighting.
Photographing this oil painting was a chore. The gloss from the painting medium produced not only glare, but dots of shine reflecting the layers of medium on the raised bits of canvas texture, even though this is ultra smooth canvas. The image color, even with the aid of PS, was/is an issue. Got to say that both portraits look far better in reality, even though “pretty” was never the goal;)
