'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau

First self portrait
This is my first portrait after Laurie Goldstein-Warren's class. I waited until I got new camera (Canon Rebel T3i) and had a chance to watch several videos and try to learn how to operate it! I set it up on tri-pod with self-timer to do several shots at a time of myself until I found one I liked. I painted the first one and forwarded it to Laurie for feedback. The second one is result after her suggestions of greying down the eyes, teeth and re-doing the hair without all the colorful strands! Much better! I'll keep doing these as they are really, really fun to do and the more I do them the better I will get!!!
