Again moving the selfie around to get different dimensions of my face… I managed to distort my perception enough o almost lose myself completely. I still see my eyes. I heard once that all portraitists paint something of themselves into every portrait they paint. This comes from the hours spent observing themselves to practice painting. I guess the traits I look at the most are my own eyes. They show up in all my faces. I also noticed that my lips were redder than I thought, so I exaggerated that a bit here. I felt very tired this morning and I’m sure it also comes through in this face.
