Russell Smith Posted 4 January , 2011 Share Posted 4 January , 2011 I hope you all will forgive me for a little bit of self indulgence. In preparation for my upcoming book, the author, publisher and I thought that it would be fun to include a period style self-portrait. A few weeks ago, while shooting figure shots for another painting, I asked my wife to go ahead and take some shots of me for the self portrait while I still had the uniform and flying gear on. Its not every day that I get to play dress-up! I finally finished the piece last week. My first painting of 2011. Well, okay, I finished last week in 2010, but I scanned it last night. Self portrait as a German Ace in 1918 oil on linen 24" x 14.75" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
