Self portrait

I'm a painter (typically with acrylics), and I made this quick self portrait a few months ago.  For this project I recreated a simplified version of it in Illustrator so I could play around with the color dynamics to help with future paintings. Below is the initial image and several variations with corresponding color palettes.

Here's the initial image with its color palette:

Here's variation 1 (complementary) and variation 2 (split complementary):

Variation 3 (sorta tetradic) and variation 4 (tetradic):

Variation 5 and variation 6, both tetradic using different combinations of the same hues:

And finally variation 7 (sorta tetradic) and variation 8 (wacky split complementary):

And here's the original painting:
