Its been almost two years since I attempted my first self portrait. The mirror I bought for the first one is still in the studio so I decided to have another go. I only seem to think about doing things like this in the winter months so I am well wrapped up. The decision to take some photos as the painting developed was a spontaneous one and its interesting, I think, to see it emerge. The canvas is 55cm x 40cm and is stained with a colour was and allowed to dry before starting.
