Today it felt like I was suffering for my art. For the self portrait painting I have adopted a pose where I am kneeling on the floor and my knees are now sore. I have to hold my head still whilst holding the pose which is a challenge as I reach up to the canvas to paint in the face. My neck is feeling the tension.
However, I am pleased with how the painting is developing so far. I hope to have it finished in the next 10 days.
The above photo shows the paints, palette, and brushes on the floor next to me.
