Self portrait in grey


Acrylic on hardboard 12" x 9"

There is quite a difference in the way the paint goes on with different surfaces. The previous painting, Self portrait in orange, was on a Belle Arti cotton canvas panel (the "canvas" is stuck onto mdf board) which has a very close, tight knit weave and is a dream to paint on.  Hardboard has its good points but the paint sits on it at a more surface kind of level. I have reposted this image (above) as the contrasts were not quite right before.
