I tried a double mirror pose so that I would be facing the right direction in my self portrait. The disadvantage to that is that it is very hard to measure. I tried first with the conte crayon, but between fighting the crayon and getting disoriented in the double mirrors, it was just too frustrating. I pulled the page out of my book and then picked up my handy dandy mechanical and went to work getting it figured out. I was much happier with the results. I have places on my paper that is just not accepting graphite. I am not sure if it is my lead or the paper.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
