Self Portrait from Mirror


The Wordsmith
4" x 6" ballpoint pen on paper.
For my workshop in Mixed Media Workshops on NING, this morning Michele Nizam (teacher) left a comment that the newest assignment was to do a self portrait using a mirror.

I had my self portrait mirror set up on my drawing table anyway so sketched myself fast in ballpoint as a challenge -- first, the challenge of not being able to go back and erase bad lines. Second, the challenge of getting the likeness in a loose sketching style rather than noodle over graphite shading for an hour and then watch the scanner drop all the light values. I like how it came out.

Still got this nasty cold but it seems to be diminishing... I hope it goes away. Yesterday got really annoying because I was coughing but nothing came up so my throat got sore and I couldn't sleep because I'd cough on every inhale. But today I've got the drips again, sinus headache and relatively less coughing, it could be worse. Argh. Really want to be done with this cold.
