The 5 Minute self portrait

Still practicing my quick sketch. My talented friend Joan sketched a 15 minute drawing of me that I duplicated in a shorter version. I wonder if I will get over my own lack of confidence in drawing. I have been very frustrated this week. But, I am determined to keep at this. It will help tremendously when I am able to work with a live model. This is the time I wish I had people to sit for me. LOL My husband isn't even keen on the idea. Go figure.

Stippling Marc Jacobs

So much for a still life, right? LOL I am working on this to for school. I will be taking and changing to hue to show different scale. This represents medium value. I have to tell ya, I have not drawn in over 20 years. I suck at etching because I have no experience. I stippled this piece because if was always an easy thing for me. ADD maybe. Who knows.
