I love the composition! Really powerful, and the play between strength and vulnerability in the picture works so well... This self-portrait is great!

Would have loved to see these "in the flesh" but Ontario is a wee bit far

do you have any tips of learning color? like i see are like this and say "how the hell did they know what colors to use???" lol

Hi, Just practice really! Trial and error, truthfully. I wish I had an easier answer for you. Just really pay attention to nuances of colour in what you want to paint and mix a bit on your palette of what you think would make that same colour and then work outward from there. I hope this helps! :)
