I've been revisiting my attempts at painting from life whilst working on an article for Leisure Painter magazine that takes a look at the self portrait. One thing that struck me was that no matter how long we've been painting, not all our ducklings will turn into swans. Still, time is never wasted so long as we learn from our mistakes, and mine was, never try wholesale changes to a painting, it soon becomes two portraits in one.
