Celeste Bergin, a great artist and wonderful fellow art blogger, requested an update on my little "Michael Van Gogh" self portrait!
(Check out Celeste's great blog!)
Still very unfinished but here is the work in progress! Aren't we all?
As you may remember a while back I had a medical procedure on my ear and thought a Van Gogh like self portrait was in order. Still more work on this one!
I definitely will be working on the likeness of the face. May add some more flesh tones! May continue with making the black Bruins shirt a funky blue. Adjust the mouth and teeth for sure. I love the color blue! I really love blue! I may make more changes because, as most of you probably know by now, when I paint I have an idea but I keep it vague. I keep it vague so I am always open to new ideas while I paint!
Being an art blogger is a great motivation for me to work more.Thank you fellow art bloggers!
I am liking this piece so far and I am almost finished! Next portrait no smile!
