Dugald Again!

This one took me longer to finish than I'd expected: lots of trying to get the eyes right and then removing the palm trunk to the left. I like the expanse of green and how it contrasts with the pinks and oranges of his face. All done now.

Another go at a self-portrait

Didn't feel completely happy with the last one: and as it didn't come home from the Art Show to be fixed, thought I'd have a go at something similar in terms of tones and feel but slightly different in terms of angle: thanks again to a Bean piccy (I'm still not sorted enough to do the mirrors and light set up so it remains the same).

On a jolly note, got a phone call yesterday from the Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award people to say the portrait of Dugald's in the final for the acquisition award on 15th Octover . . . v exciting.
