I've been watching through Mark's videos recently and have just discovered this forum. I am looking forward to criticism here and all kinds of technical discussions. I am Russian-Canadian an live at the very Eastern tip of North America, St. John's, NL. I have a day job (not related to art) and have been painting as a hobby for over 10 years now. I'd like to develop more loose, ''painterly" style. To introduce myself, here is my recent self-portrait done during isolation. Cheers, Iakov.
