August art challenge

Pheew . . where did the time go?!
We thought it might be fun to paint self portraits this month. Every artist at some point in their lifetime, usually more than once, paints a self portrait. Your challenge is to paint yourself within 30 minutes. In other words keep it really simple and get the essence of your likeness. You can sit in the front of the mirror or grab a photo but do not over think or overwork your painting.
Have fun and we can't wait to "see" you!

Nigel didn't send us his painting because he worked
beyond the 30 minute limit but we felt a need to share
his painting. This is the excellence that we all hopefully
aspire to attain on our paths as artists!

We'd love to hear from you whether it's praise or critique. Sometimes it's a simple comment that keeps us going as painters!
