Faces of foliage for flat fireplaces!

I recently moved into a lovely little condo all my own.
My first order of business was to decorate my mantle with a painting.

So, Monsieur Foliage-Face was born!

My camera changed the colour slightly so everything is a touch lighter than in real life, but the rest is pretty much the same.
Looking at pictures of who I based the face off of and how the face actually turned out made me realize how out of practice I am, but I am still pretty satisfied with the final result.

This is also the first painting I have painted and not gave away. How selfish!
