self portrait

self portraitToday I bring you a self portrait in muted tones. I did this in the bathroom mirror and actually tried a bit of sight measuring rather than just doodling away as I usually do. Two things I noticed doing this:

  1. when closing one eye to sight measure I can’t help but screw half my face up which throws things off a bit
  2. the reflection of the pencil I’m using to measure is a bit confusing at first

As usual with self portraits I can’t say it’s an uncanny likeness but there is definitely something about the mouth – probably I just recognise the stern expression of concentration I must have whenever I’m drawing :)

This marks day three of world watercolour month
