Not a very crispy Bacon

I scrubbed so much at this portrait, so it lacks magic, when will I ever learn, let the watercolour to do the work! Frustrating, but at the same time I learned a lot. Trying to do as many portraits as I can right now, I'm missing something, they are not like their owners. I hope by doing many, something will click and a light bulb will turn on.

Francis Bacon 23 x 30,5 cm, Fabriano fine grain - cold pressed 300g

    1. Setxu, as usual you are way too kind! But I enjoy your generosity, we artists need all the encouragement we can get, so thank you! :)

      I'm working on another self-portrait at the moment, it feels good so far, better than my first attempt. It should be finished by Sunday.
