The last year or so my main subject has been portraits, yet I've never painted a self-portrait.
So, one of my painting goals for this year has been to paint a self portrait.
It was a lot harder than I thought, I squint a lot when I'm painting but when you do that when you're looking at yourself your expression changes, not very handy..
I tried to preserve the brushstrokes as much as possible, deliberately not blending.
It was a good learning experience and I will definitely do more of these in the future.
