Self Portrait

"Self Portrait" 6.5" x 8.5" Pastel on "Canson" drawing paper, Varnished
Auction starts @ 7.30Pm Pacific Time. doing a self portrait with soft pastels is not that easy, especially when the size is small and you are trying to do some details with the edge of the pastels, whats even worse the pastel itself crumbles in your hand and dissapears in small pieces of dust, so this is the result of my struggle with this medium and yes I was looking at myself in a mirror, I hate photos (especially Vacation photos).

Great self portrait Daniel. It has an air of mystery. I also like the touches of blue in the background.
