Self Portrait. 9x12, Oils on board.

I really do admire Portrait Painters. The ones

that I have done I have found to be very

difficult. And yet there are Artist`s that

don`t think twice about it, and just get

on with it without any difficulty at all.

I`m certainly not one of them.


  1. Wow Vic, I give you credit, you did a great job. How long did it take you to complete this portrait. I've been trying to go back to portraits and I know they're not easy. I commend you my friend, excellent.

  2. Hi Joan. Thanks for your great comment. I have had mixed comments on this one. five of our club members said it was me and they liked it.
    A friend of mine said it was definitely me but
    a bit younger, and one of my Sons said it was a good painting but not too much like me. As I`ve
    always said, you can`t win them all can you? It
    took me about six hours over a period of three days. My self portrait drawings seem to be a better likeness though. Thanks again Joan and all the best.
