I’ve continued working on my self portrait from a few days ago. As I was using very large foam brushes for the first stage,  I decided to start adding more detail with charcoal to guide me.

Followed by some more paint layers.

I’ll keep at it and am actually quite enjoying the differences in the process of painting from life subjects vs. painting  from some random thought or feeling. Obviously each process has many of it’s own merits. But right now it is the differences that I am appreciating the most. Variety is fun.
