self portrait in progress part one

I thought I would share with you day to day progress on a self portrait I'm working on out on my porch/balcony. This is oil on canvas. I apologize about the blurriness, but these are rough general areas to start with. It gets more specific as I go on, so you have the general idea for now.

The setup. It's pretty nice out this time of year in Austin & I prefer to deal with fumes outside as much as possible.

Starts with a sienna wash and wipeout of lighter areas with a rag.

Then a rough blocking in of main areas of color.

To be continued tomorrow.
