I think this looks a bit more like Alex. It must be because of the expression.
I LOVE the hair though, that's dead on.
I like it, even though your ever present euphoric smile isn't present here. Awesome work.
Painting ourselves is so hard - inevitably people say to me "Who is that?" .... ummm so I make myself older or younger, thinner or prettier! But to do it in a 6x8 inch format is amazing! I think it's a cool painting, and I can see from your photo on the blog that you got the resemblance!
Thanks for the comments. I always find it very difficult to paint myself but seeing I painted it for the blog, I just posted it. Always a bit uncomfortable so thanks for the encouraging comments.
