Self portrait x 3

I worked on the self portrait today.
Here's a detail of the face - It's too wet to put in all the fine lines, but the shapes are there.
Except for a few more key sags and wrinkles, I am going to use great restraint and not polish this. If I get the urge, I'll work on the mirror frame. heh.
The hand and brush need another few rounds, and I'll and clean up the sleeves and the edges where the hair lies over the coat.
The solemn expression? The curse of an overbite -  I didn't want to paint teeth and I can't smile without them showing.
