self portrait

self portrait daily painting5″ by 6 1/2″ mixed media

The Daily Painters group asked everyone to submit a self portrait today. I was going to post an older one but I had the time today so here it is – my version of me.

This was done in mixed media on watercolor paper. I started out with a pencil sketch and then layered it with colored pencils. The final touches were done with soft pastels. I spent a little over and hour and a half on it which is why it looks slightly unfinished. I wasn’t really sure which look I was going for while working on it.
