Selfie - day 3

I worked for  a couple of hours on "Selfie" today. I just roughed in some colours for the face , hands and jacket.  Did part of the legs and may leave them as they are - unfinished as in my painting of Mike and Lexy- but zI don't think I will use drips. I think I will also just rough in part of the background- probably a turquiosey colour. Nothing is right yet but there is already a sense that the poorly drawn hands are reaching forward. This is achieved by the drawing (such as it is) and the burnt umber shadows under  the arms.  The collar is tricky brcause the fesign is not intuitive. So far this picture is lovely and free. I hope I can keep it that way.
