My Red Scarf

I miss painting people and haven't painted a self portrait in several years.  This was painted "Alla Prima" which means in Italian "at first attempt".  It's the technique I most enjoy when painting figurative work.  The painting is completed at the first sitting and paint is applied wet on wet.  It was fun painting from life again even if it was life reflected in a mirror.
