Here is a series of still frames from my new Instructional DVD Demonstration on Painting the Self-Portrait. The still shots show my basic procedure, but I explain every brushstroke in the actual video. To purchase the DVD, please visit:

1. The initial Lay-in, massing in the light and shadow.
 2. The shadows and peripheral darks come first. Keeping a sculptural feeling.
  3. Sculpting the form with the light.
4. Heavy impasto on the most lit-up planes.
 5. Further developing the light with more paint and highlights.
 6. A close-up shot of the eye.
7. The paint looks abstract and beautiful.
Only from a distance, it becomes a highlight
on the forehead.
8. The finish!
