Another painting from a 3 hour sitting. much better then last week. I don't know if I will be attempting another self-portrait any time soon. Still..it is strange how many things in painting become much clearer after I upload it. The lower left corner feels like it was left behind the rest of the painting..and event he thought he hand is behind the head, I need to something more to articulate it.

Another still life study. My son had finished eating a banana and some grapes and thought that the discards looked kind of interesting and so I decided to paint them. I worked on pushing the contrast more and on an sharpening my edges. I also worked on applying more paint. It was a good exercise.
The grape stem in the foreground needs work as does the ellipse of the plate (aargh..I did not catch the asymmetry till I saw it on the computer screen)
