I’m using some crazy colors on this self portrait, some are just right out of the tube.

Maybe in these photos the colors don’t look super high chroma but to me they are. I’m really pushing these colors and I’m really enjoying it at the moment. I’ll keep slowly working down the painting pushing colors and experimenting. I have more than enough time to bring it back in subsequent layers if I need to.
