132 Self-portrait #8 (And now done with a mirror!)


So i finally got myself a mirror! A tiny, little mirror, much to small for my big head – And moving it further away doesn’t work, not with these glasses! (I might try another one with my contacts on) – So I had to reposition the mirror a couple of times, and i couldn’t help to move a bit, and then these damned glasses that keep moving around on my face!

All in all – wonderful! I can see why people kept urging me to draw from a mirror in stead of photoes. This is much more fun, and although the hairy beast on the drawing may look more than a gremlin than me (i do not look like a gremlin) – I think that i capture things that are just not present in a photograph! You can almost see me struggeling for one thing.

  1. Love what you’re doing, practice makes perfect! You do appear to be improving.
    I’m doing a similar thing with landscape painting. I’ve painted many landscapes “after” my favorite artists, Monet, Van Gogh and Renior. Now I’m trying to paint a landscape a week on a small canvas to get faster and better.
    Keep creating!!

    • Thanks! I think it’s a great way to learn! I just had a look at your site. I really like your landscapes – i’m looking forward to getting into painting at some point. Thanks again for the encouragement!
