Self Portrait: Sand Texture Studies


This Study was painted with a mixture of watercolour, and oil pastels, and it wasn't meant to capture perfection of my face but rather the texture that i want to apply on the background of the portrait. It was influenced by Louis le Brocquy ,not by his spirit-like portraits but by his freedom when applying the brushstrokes

I really like the expressiveness of this portrait, Ruben - you're doing some really nice stuff - very interested to see your final portrait...

i just hope can give the same expressiveness on photoshop, to give the same effect.
