Self Portrait

No I am not trying to be Rembrandt. He completed more than 100 self-portraits. And he was not into flattering himself in any of them.

I have done quite a few self portraits in various classes and mediums. None of mine are particularly complementary either, not that I am not trying to make them that way.  Fellow students told me I am prettier.  My teacher told me she liked this oil painting, especially the use of color on the left side.  So here it is. I have my head tilted back for a different approach and maybe did capture the stress of the pose, or the painting or both.
