100 in 100, Day 61

self portrait, standing
oil pastel, 17x14 inches



Well, I made a few changes all at once, and ended up with a mess!

To start with, I moved to bigger paper. Then, I stood up. And biggest change of all, I tried oil pastels with turp as a way to ease into the painterly world.

Ouch,

Oh well, it's a good first step.
