After four months of working and picking at my second attempt at my self-portrait, I'm excited to let you all know that I've finally finished it. Yep! I've completed the background, finished up the details and signed it! On the back, I wrote down the music I listened to while I painted. From the Red Hot Chili Peppers 'Mother's Milk' to The Eagles and Peter Gabriel - all on vinyl - every bit of their music has been wonderful and powerful in this piece that I've painted.For the finishing touches, I sat outside this afternoon to make sure the colours were right and completed the background. I tried to get the markings in the background as good as Van Gogh's; but didn't quite get them the way I wanted them. As with anything, there's plenty to learn in the world of art.
