Scourge of the Botkin Challenge!

For the June 2011 Moses Botkin Challenge, I managed to come up with a real 'challenge'...a self-portrait. Started mine before we left for a week at IAPS, and worked on it 2 sessions after we got home. I think I should call it lobster-bake. However, when it gets dry, I can adjust those colors to my pale pink Irish complexion that better suits my flourescent red hair :)

I love your self portrait! And egads, is that a challenge or what? I just painted my self portrait and. . . yikes. Was. Not. Fun. it's cool to see your blog, I've been a fan of Suzanne's for a while and just barely discovered you. Great work!

thanks, Crystal. I should have left it alone...but was trying to get a more realistic skin tone. At least I have the photo! AND maybe a better painting.

First time i did a self, I would look in the mirror, squint, then paint. Did a wonderful rendition of a squinty-eyed not real happy looking person! Just what I was seeing!
