Art Holiday Accommodation in SW France Details

Ian wanted to paint a self portrait, which is usually quite a challenge. 
So we spent a couple of half days in the studio...

... starting with a drawn and then painted outline of his head and shoulders on a black ground. 
Then he gradually built up the shapes, tints and tones that make up the face (his face, that is),
until it started to take on a likeness...

... and eventually, after about eight hours hard yakka, he got to the end product. 
This is Ian with his own self portrait.
