Self Portrait No1

Not the best photograph, admittedly, but I’ll take another when the paint is dry.

It’s surprisingly hard trying to capture something of yourself. Mistakes, I’ve made a few. The nose is too long and aquiline, which forces the upper lip to be too large. But there are moments of structure and light I’m reasonably pleased with.
