I have been trying my hand at portraits recently. So here is my self, from a photo taken on the trip to Arkhangelsk. Being ex RN and MN I think it comes under Maritime Art.

Excellent indeed. Nice to see the face behind all these super paintings!

Yes, very good indeed. I guess when you are doing a "selfie" such as this there must always be the temptation to "improve" the original, rather that the "warts and all" approach?

Thank you both for commenting, no this is as is. I did one of my wife, and one of Dasha, one of the students who assisted us in Arkhangelsk. And of course the one I previously posted of the Russian Veteran. Anyway it will be back to the sea next.
