Acrylic painting: Sir Joshua Reynolds Portrait

This A4 acrylic painting took about one hour. It’s based on one of Sir Joshua Reynolds’ self portraits, but I admit there is little likeness between the face in mine and in his. Regardless, securing a ‘likeness’ wasn’t my primary aim when painting this – I just wanted to paint someone, anyone. I didn’t use a pencil sketch, I just went straight in with paint. I’m quite happy with the result.
