Self-Portrait on Gesso Covered Board

I did this self-portrait this evening for the Daily Paintworks self-portrait  challenge.  This is painted on a gesso covered illustration board which I covered with a wash of various browns and red browns and then painted the portrait on top of the washes.  This painting is 12" x 7".

Thanks, Sherry! My sagging eyelids just about cover my eyes now so the blue doesn't show too much! (smile!)
