man i can't begin to tell you how much i like this style. i only wish i had the artistic guts to try oils again. it's like looking at someone through a rain drenched window. some stranger that's come to your door in the night. perhaps wanting to use a phone because his car's broke down. perhaps something more sinister is at hand.
oh shit. i just noticed this is a SELF portrait! uhm. sorry about the serial killer allusion. excellent piece.
Ah, this is just beautiful. Something I could never do. I need too much control and precision over my art, which makes me love and appreciate these rough textured pieces all the more. Fantastic job. I really enjoy the palette.
