Self Portrait with leftover paint
Paul Hutchinson
oil on gessoed hardboard
200x150mm

I had this big pile of congealed white lead paint that had been sitting on my palette for far too long and I didn't want to waste it, so rather than smearing it up the wall like I usually do, I had another go at facing the dusty mirror.
It was painted in failing light and a dramatic thunderstorm.
