Capable

Acrylic painting on A4 Paper, selfportrait

Here’s another one for Illustration Friday. The word of the week was capable and I went for the angle capable of making choices. So that’s me all tangled up in a bunch of ropes wondering wether or not I should use that knife or not.
I’m reasonable happy with it so far 🙂 It really helped having a good reference photo for once. I have to say it’s quite hard trying to take photo’s with one hand, holding a knife in the other all the while trying not to look crosseyed or too homicidal maniac like. The expression was important to me and though I didn’t get it quite right( in the photo I look less worried) in the painting it’s still close enough to what I was shooting for. Would like to finish this one off more but… after a month of scouring the job adds I finally have a job, possibly two, and I’m not sure how much daylight I have left to paint in so we’ll see.

Edit: updated with a more finished scanned version
