Looking Through

"Looking Through" Another self-portrait from a bathroom mirror sketching session! This was painted in reverse on glass and as such was rather hard to photograph. There's tons of depth that you really can only see in person! Rather than putting down your base color and building the painting up from there, you start with your finish details (outlining and highlights in this case) and work your way backward. Painting in this style is a fun break from tradition and really works the brain muscles!
