Self portrait study

Whenever I feel I need to sharpen my brush, I look at myself in the mirror and study painting with my face for two hours or three hours of limited time frame like violinists practicing scales and difficult passages.
For this practice, I use as low quality of brushes, size 2, 4 and 6, as possible and student grade of paints.

As usual, I started tonal drawing using raw umber on 9"x 12" cotton canvas pads.
