Self Portrait

February 17th, 2009

To continue playing with my new brush pen, I decided to attempt a self portrait.  Tonight, I present to the world my first ever self portrait.  Never before attempted.  Done on Canson watercolor paper (9″x12″ 90#), brush pen, and kimberly watercolor pencils.

For the record, the ink that came with the brush pen is NOT water proof.

Tonight’s EDM challenge is to draw some keys. Here are my keys, complete with my nail clippers and my “I heart my dog” key chain girl1 made for me.

You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast

    I am always intrigued by the eyes you draw. These are no exception. There is depth and kindness in them. However, as for this being a self portrait……I don’t see you as you do.

    Wonderful face…love the expression. Great loose technique.

    This is a great self portrait! I like the way you used the brush pen, very expressive.
