This is an exaggerated self-portrait of John Byrne (almost like a caricature), with tall narrow head and wide shoulders. He wears baseball cap turned to the side, a thick cardigan, and is smoking a cigarette. A cloud of wispy smoke comes from his cigarette and fills the right side of the painting. He is portrayed against a sea background.
