I did this new self portrait after watching El Coro's Alla Prima Portraiture video from Massive Black.
Below are two pieces I entered into the University of Wyoming student art show. They are mostly colored pencil with some acrylic. The profile view piece was accepted into the show, where it won a $250 merit award. The other piece won the "Best of Show" at the Salon de Refuse for $150 and was sold for $600. It's nice to actually make some money with art. :)
