The top or left water color was painted with vermilion, Naples yellow and black in 2005.
The other w/c was painted with the mirror closer to me, 3 primary colors in 2005.
TIP: Alcohol on will remove dried oil paint. Alcohol will also dissolve the dry water-based acrylics on your palette or on your painting, the acrylic paints harden again upon drying. Alcohol dries faster than water so you have another tool. Another water-based paint is Cera Colla Wax Soap emulsion, new window. It's made by emulsifying wax and ammonia with heat. Ammonia or water are the two ways to either dissolve, remove or paint with either the cara cola wax paint or acrylics. Alcohol is good for cleaning the heel of brushes but it destroys paints. You can bring back a brush-full of that acrylic color that just dried out on your palette with ammonia.
Another water-based medium is Fresco, new window. You can use alcohol as lime water to lock in a pigment in a fresco, not that you would want to. Too much alcohol will melt the lime.
The last medium I want to paint a portrait in is wet skim non-fat milk and dry skim non-fat milk powder and stand oil or sun dried linseed oil . Both are made to the same consistency and mixed oil2:3non-fat milk. This mix is combined with tube oil paint, 1:1. It sets in the same time frame as water and no solvent is needed.
Instead, I painted another self portraid in acrylics the same size as the last one, 11x15, 9-13-15, called "Self Portraid 2 Lights 9-13-15 #1007". It's warm light from the left and cool light from the right.
With the head level:
Matess did a complementary/opposition self portraid with green and red pigments,
It's warm light from the left and cool light from the right.
