Self Portrait - Rachana

I must admit that I took such a long time to share my this painting.
May be I was little scared to share it...

Today I am sharing the painting I completed with so many patience and so many great attempts.
Every artist would try to make self portrait at-least once , and this was my third attempt.

Rachana - Self Portrait - Acrylics on 8 x 12 Canvas

I never thought to make self-portrait until I took my this picture for Mitti Design's  Zumka earrings collection..
As I mentioned earlier, I always wanted to make my portrait, but every time I ended up mt thoughts
after making sketch.. But this time sketch was so perfect and I was so happy to take next step..
Sharing picture of initial sketch.

I always had fear of spoiling it, so I didn't add any extra things in it. I just wanted to make it perfect.. :)
After so many thoughts and lots of patience I finished this painting on the New year's evening.
And took time of some 20 days to finally share it with you all..
 Parakeet was not the part of my initial sketch, but I always had a feeling of something is missing in my work.. And my husband's imagination of Parrot saying something to me, completed my thoughts.

So, how do you like my new painting?
