Hope 16 New Years Eve Eve

You will now see that I have begun the process of filling in the area below my hand. This is little more than a few layers of blue and red. But to get the correct effect I have to pay attention to the shadows on my hand and along my arm.I also have to deepen the intensity of shading on the tree and sky. In hours, I have spent over 45 so far..I envisage that I will be finished at around 55.
I am now turning my mind toward the prospect of my next piece. (it won't be another self portrait as I've spent the last two months looking at myself!!!).
