Characteristic of his more mature technique of layering paint to create thickness, texture, and depth until the final image appears, Whistler balances this portrait with the color, light, and texture to create a wholistic self-portrait. The artist sits in a grey smock while holding his paintbrushes and gazes to the viewer.
