Me Again!

David Allen

A self portrait in acrylics. Having recently bought a book by Hashim Akib I thought I’d try to copy his technique using a photo of myself as the subject. Not having the confidence to go straight in using larger brushes and the corresponding larger quantities of paint I scaled things down a bit and so the largest brush I used was a 1.5 cm flat System 3.
Unfortunately I found it difficult to add the new paint without it blending. So further practice needed…
