Self-Portrait

self-portrait

From my last drawing lesson. Our instructor had us cover a paper with graphite, and then draw by erasing and using a pencil (9B) to add only the darkest shadows back in. I think it's a pretty good likeness of me. Better than any other self-portrait I've done.

Grows on you, doesn't it?
Give it some more time, and you'll see even more of a resemblance...
(trust me!, she sez...)

Thanks for telling us how you did this...though I don't believe it is as easy as you suggest. Wonderful take on SPT
