Some self-portraits

For lack of a better subject, I've been creating some self-portraits recently.

April 2013. Pen on paper.
April 2013. Digital painting.
December 2012. Digital painting.

There's a load of other projects that I'll be able to share soon, but not quite yet I'm afraid. Stay tuned!

What is... April

April's calendar image is of Chatelherault near Hamilton, Scotland.

It was a very large acrylic-on-card commission, completed in July 2011.

Not my best painting (particularly the vivid green foreground), but I hadn't painted with acrylics for a long time and found the process quite tricky to be honest.
I tried to take a little inspiration from Edward Hopper, who has for the longest time been one of my favourite painters.
I should really do more landscape painting, but finding inspiration seems to have been the hard part for the past few years! Got any ideas? If so, I'd love to hear them.
