Regency Self-Portrait by lachwen Regency Self-Portrait by lachwen
This is a small-ish, quick study that I did last fall to get back into the swing of painting. It's a self-portrait of me in my Regency bonnet and spencer jacket which I had made the previous year.

Like almost everything else I do, the medium is oils.

Nice design. Does the brim go all the way 'round or is there a break in the back? I like capotes. I need to start trying those too.
