A crossroads of thought somewhere south of religion and culture, just north of music and verse, slightly west of trivia and mystery, and somewhere east of old and new.

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!
