Self-portrait aged 18

Self-portrait aged 18

My fourth canvas was an early attempt at painting myself. Back then, I didn’t have an easel, so I painted on a level table. I would be working on the picture at an acute angle, not facing at the picture squarely. Consequently the lower part of my face is more broad than real life, I look a bit bloated.
