I haven't posted in a WHILE! Well, this is a self-portrait... oil painting. A lot of things wrong with it. It's my firt oil, so forgive the lack of skill.

I like it! it's just that your nose got pretty strong lines and hard shadow that make it look like it's not attached to your head else its very good!

The left eye-brow is in lighter color than the other eye-brow.


How big was this painting?

Wow Noah, you've obviously been practicing. Your time away must have been time well spent. Good job.

Actually, this is my first oil paint.
The painting is 16"x20". You can do pretty fine details with oils. This is not all that detailed.

Oh yeah... I scanned it, and the brightness needs work. That's why the eyebrows are different.

I think the mouth isn't right under the nose. It seems a bit to the left of the pic. Anyway, the image is great.

It's not the flaw in the painting... it's a flaw in my face

(I had a strange face on that day)
