Self Portrait in Fading Light



Self Portrait in Fading Light
Oil on gessoed Arches paper
200x165mm


Oil paint on paper has a special quality about it that I find quite sensuous. I worked with the paint very thin and used my fingers and a rag to blend the colour and reveal the texture of the paper.  I wanted to try and capture the mysterious quality of the fading light and wasn't too concerned about getting proportions correct.
