I don't know why I enjoy the agony of painting myself in a mirror. I learn an awful lot - I ended up scraping one that I was working on with a scarf around my head - it was just tooo hokey - even for me.
My goal with this was to try to see how far I can push the values - lights and darks and still changing form... I also wanted to experiment with a lot of thick paint... I wanted to be feminine and yet have thick, big, bold brushstrokes like I would paint a lumberjack.
It's obviously a WIP because clearly, I need eyes to paint - I was getting too fussy with them so I wiped them out. This is a day's work.
I'm blind to it at the moment - if anything is jarring, please let me know.
