Self-portrait in oils

Today at the Lit & Phil art class in Newcastle, I finished my self-portrait in oils. This was, in fact my first ever oil painting. I decided to digitise it and work on it within my digital painting program. Basically, the background in my oil painting didn’t really work. I therefore put a background of bookshelves into the digital painting and cut myself out, as it were. I prefer the end result of the digital manipulation to the basic oil painting. Anyway, here it is…

Self-portrait in oils, rendered digitally

I shall be playing at Ragged Edge in Second Life on Thursday 15th March at the earlier time of 7 pm English time (but that is still midday SLT, since there is an hour difference from usual because we are currently behind the States in our clock change for summer). Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
