This video shows the complete process of painting a self portrait in oils, working from a mirror over three sittings (each about 45 mins long).
- The video is sped up about 4x.
- This is the palette I used: Titanium White, Ivory Black, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cadmium Red Light.
- The panel is 5×7 inches, prepared with gesso and a wash of Red Gold Lake.
