This week we decided to create pen and ink self portraits. Lara and I both used current photos on our phones and we sketched happily for several hours.
Here’s Lara’s photo and self-portrait ~
Here’s my photo and self-portrait ~
I must confess that this is my second attempt. My first sketch seemed very out of proportion which worried me every time I looked at it. Somehow, one is more critical of a self-portrait and one notices everything that is slightly distorted or out of proportion. Makes one wonder if that is how we see ourselves? My sketch is much bigger, a lovely A3 size page.
