Painting self portrait sitting at a table

Managed to get a sense of space by distancing and cooling the colour using lemon and light mauve tones to contrast the figure. Not easy to make a simple portrait interesting. At least the painting is going reasonably well and the brushwork is fresh. I am trying not to overpaint, to keep a sense of the initial idea, not widen the colour palette too much, whilst achieving sufficient contrast.
