'Self Portrait After I Said Yes'

'Self Portrait After I Said Yes', 92 x 71cm, Oil on Linen, 2012. 
Documentation of the process of painting a self portrait from life, using only a mirror. Quite possibly the most difficult painting I've attempted! I started the painting 6th February and finished it 13th July 2012. It took the full 6 months on a residency in the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin. Thankfully it's a luxurious studio which allowed for long hours!!!
