Great stuff Brian. Have you done many self portraits? Did you work from a photo or mirror? I'm inspired--I'm gonna try one soon.
Brian, this is great. I have it in my mind that self portraits are difficult but of course there is no difficult, it's just recording lights and darks right?!
thank you Elliot, this is from a photo that i took a while ago,glad you like it.Thank you also joanna, i am Brian's twin brother,David and your right its just rendering color notes and their shapes.Thanks for your comments
Hey Joanna, and Elliot, this is Dave's portrait of himself, yes , we're identical twins, but he's the better looking one! Brian
Hi David. Yes, Brian told us about you and showed us your Web site when he was last with us. You do such great work. It's funny, Elliot and I both mistook this painting of you for a painting of Brian. Had I remembered you were twins I might have realized our mistake. You obviously look very alike! Sorry for the confusion. What a great painting!
