Self Portrait-2009 Umber 3

I mixed a 7-value range of dark to light using burnt umber and naples yellow on this go around. I do not think I'll paint this picture in color, but rather continue to refine details using the the 7- value scale. I may add a bit of "cool" white in the highest highlights and maybe a "warm" black in the deepest shadows.

Because this is a face "only a mother could love" I plan to give this painting to my mom for Christmas!

Chris, this looks awesome! I would be tempted to stop right here! I like the earthy tones!!
