Today was the hand-in deadline for the BP Portrait awards, I have now submitted my piece and will wait and see. My painting is not at the stage I would like it to be, but that's due to lack of knowledge at this point. I am however proud of what has been accomplished, I've never tried to paint a realistic human figure in acrylics before, so this as a first try is satisfying. Whatever happens with the competition - I'm a happy bunny for trying something I was nervous to aim for, and will enter this competition every year.
This is the only other self-portrait i've tried in acrylics, a surrealist piece;
