I promised I would stick at it, no matter how difficult I find it. This one I drew without looking at the page at all. I struggle with proportions. I have to trust that some day I will recognise myself in these self-portraits.
This one I started without looking at the page. Then I gave up and looked at the page a lot. And it got worse and worse. And I do not recognise myself (thankfully?)
Is there anything positive I can take away from this?
- I like how I drew my hair, without worrying about the detail, but catching some elements quite well.
- The two little squiggles for the nose are pretty, and can definitely be incorporated in some form of portrait.
- I hate to say this, but there is something about the chin that is accurately "me"
- Portraits with glasses are hard. Maybe I should wear my contact lenses the next time I draw a self-portrait.
