My self portrait

Ok. I turned in my self portrait today. I'd say it's about 95% finished. I still need to fix some things but I'm pretty happy with where it is right now. I have a deeper respect for oil paintings and the artists who tame them. I will, with out a doubt, be painting in oils and on a large scale more often from now on. While there's more area to cover, I feel, some how, it's a faster process. I block in large shapes then go into detail. I think the most important virtue to practice is patience. With that anything is possible.

And there you have it.
