Update: ‘Self-portrait’ is one of DPW Facebook picks of the day! I have always been reluctant about painting self-portraits. I don’t know, it feels too personal and being shy does not help.

Update: ‘Cumbrian Forest’ is one of DPW Facebook picks of the day! This is a little study of a tree and how it connects with its surroundings. I took this photo a few years back in the North of England in the Lake District (Cumbria). I love how the light filters through the canopies and […]
