Initially, this was a class-assigned painting from 2008—a study in complementary colors blue and orange. The other day, I finished painting over it with another study in blue and orange. Same canvas; same color palette. But the new study is based on the mountain next door.
Okay. Self-portrait. Here’s me as a study in likeness; oil on birch plywood, 16″x20″.
I had a really hard time photographing this painting. This is the best I could do for now, but the colors are weird, and it’s a bit warpy-like. As soon as I get a better photo, it will be replaced ;). Click to see them in detail.
