First of all I'd like to thank everyone who commented on my
previous 29 faces post. Such wonderful encouragement - thank you!
I thought maybe the urge would dissipate once I sobered up, but I have been
drawing and painting ever since my last post - even on canvas and everything!
Today I'm sharing an impossible project, but something I was curious about
- the self portrait. I switched the crayons for plain pencil and paper this time.
The hardest part was the eyes, I need a lot of practice there.
I don't know whether to call this first one Before Coffee or Morning Hair.
Both applied, and it came out looking as crooked as I was feeling.
It's strange to really study one's own wrinkles and sagging skin...
I'm definitely not 20 anymore.
This second one I like to call Midsomer Murders, because she came out
looking a bit homicidal and kind of British, don't you think?
Oh, and if you're wondering why the women in these pictures
look nothing alike, it's because I'm a shape-shifter - obviously.
Well, that makes 6 so far - only 23 to go....
