Oil Painting Lesson with Gregory Smith - Day 8

Today I started by reworking on my shirt, making shadow a bit lighter, softening crease and putting buttons. 

I still struggled getting basic shapes right.  Greg gave me a tip of doing eyes, but I couldn't do it well and I run out of time. 

John Sargent reportedly said, "Portrait is a likeness in which there's something wrong with a mouth."
Well, there are so many things gone wrong in my case. 

So, this is my first attempt of self-portrait on this size. I've learned a lot from Greg, and I'll definitely do it again. 

Unfinished. 16 x 20 in.
