Still working on this one a bit. For once (not counting the profile views) I wasn’t looking at the camera.
I’ve painted this portrait because I felt I was missing a more ‘vulnerable’ view.
Hopefully this one, on a clear plate, will fit in well with the rest of my collection.
This plate is has “Candyfloss” printed on the back of it and the colours are all pastel so I decided it would suit a stereotypically summer-y portrait.
I am pretty happy with the resulting portrait although I might touch up the hair a bit another day.

Not completely sure about this one because of the shape the image ended up. I could always extend it and paint the rest in but it was supposed to just be a glimpse.
A work in progress. Hair is infuriating.
Clear plate and the most detailed miniature of myself I have ever painted.
It’s an attempt at transparency in a portrait (hence the plate) and I have painted on both sides to give the viewer as information much as possible. The thing is, you are still only seeing me how I want you to and I can never fully represent myself in just one painting.
This is a precious piece; giving life to an otherwise mundane plate.
A view of me in my hat that I wear a lot of the time in this cold weather but rarely photograph because it’s off when I’m inside. Just another facet.
