Oil Painting, Self-Portrait

After a long walk in the morning, I spent about 3 hours painting this one in our 'studio'. 

It's very challenging to keep still while painting myself in a mirror, especially when facing not straight. 

The canvas is oil-primed on linen, which I had bought at half price for an experiment. 
I found it's a bit slippery compared to panels we usually use, but I like its smoothness once I get used to it. 

I'm not happy with this one. There are so many obvious errors. 
However, it was a good lesson. 

Oil on canvas. 12 x 16 in.
