I warped the selfie on my phone for the model on this one. I observed it for a few minutes and then painted from memory. As soon as the outlines went down on paper I was aware that I was channelling feelings about my age. I couldn’t figure out why I let my nose remain so aquiline, even as I tried to redraw the line. I think I saw one of my mother’s expressions on my face or imagined what my own facial expression was looking like as I painted. I’m sure my face wasn’t relaxed and I feel this is in this portrait.
