An emotional self-portrait + a close-up from the painting
Painted the background above with airbrush-watercolor, then the portrait and the foreground below with self made-wax-paint, using the iron, stylus (with also a calligraphy pen-nib included), hot air-gun, and finally for the very fine layers and final details: aqwax, the water-soluble wax, with finest hair-brushes. Was a great challenge!
