Self-portrait in oil

Looking back at the body of work I’ve acquired as a student over the last two years, I’m a little surprised to see how many self-portraits there are. Very few are what you’d call ‘traditional’.

Personal still life – sketch.
D&A Foundation course project.

A favourite bag, a peacock feather I’ve had for years, a bottle of Chanel No. 5, nail polish and paracetamol.

Personal Still Life – oil on panel, 400 x 300 mm, 2010.

Not too bad for my first oil painting.
