M.E. - a portrait of self (2)

Have been working today on the self portrait started a couple of days ago - see the next post for the initial sketch and blocking in of the background. AM really pleased with how I have ended it today although have re blocked out the eyes and mouth as they just were not 'right' and were annoying me. The joy of working with acrylic is it dries quickly and you can overpaint areas that you are unhappy with.

Will not be working on it anymore this week as am off to the pain clinic and then I will be getting ready for next weeks exhibition which has to be set up on Monday. Fortunately my neighbour is also involved in the same exhibition so we will set up together - only exhibiting some photography and one painting and cards this time so will be an easy set up I hope.
