Alphonse Mucha Inspired Self Portrait

I've been taking an Illustration class for the past 11 weeks. A lot of it has been done in Adobe Illustrator but when I can I've done the project in watercolor. This is the last one. We had to do a self-portrait. What I've enjoyed about this class is the tremendous amount of freedom we've had with the projects. Basically the assignment was do a self-portrait however you want. Text optional. I did an Alphonse Mucha inspired project for another class and used my daughter for the model. This time I did me. I did this one pretty small so I could get it done today but I have a much larger painting in the works. Maybe I'll make myself smile a little bit better on that one...
