I did this self-portrait two weeks ago in acrylic. I painted myself using the camera on my phone as a mirror at night with a lamp illuminating part of my face. It is a very small painting, because I am painting on a piece of watercolour paper in a small pochade box I am holding which is barely visible in the painting.
I painted this acrylic self-portrait to test out the idea of painting on a very small scale in acrylic, with the intention of doing urban sketching in it. It is very portable, though size-wise it presents significant limitations. Presently I am preoccupied with drawing figures/portraits in graphite thanks to NMA so I have dropped the experiment for now.
