Continuing to paint on canvas and on the suggestion of our tutor I looked  up Caravaggio who she felt must have  been a influence to Peter Howson, looking at his work I had to agree, so  good old Google lead me to  this striking self-portrait titled the “Desperate man”.  a self portrait and some incredible lighting it seamed a good continuation of my theme.

so now its  finished I find out its not a self portrait of Caravaggio  but a self portrait of another artist Gustave Coubet who produced some equally remarkable paintings. still an enjoyable picture  to paint.
