Self-Portrait

I had better walk my talk here!  Last month I saw a journal entry that said, “You are meant to be seen.”  It just hit me.  It made me brave.  So I picked up a pen and started to draw my own portrait.  I did it freehand, no underdrawing, expressive line as close to real life, including the setting, as I could get it.  The shading is done with watercolor pencil.  She makes me very happy.

  1. Great job. I wouldn’t know where to start for myself.

    Thanks Sharon! One of my favorite artist/authors, Diana Trout of “Journal Spilling,” has a youtube video that takes the scary out of doing a self portrait for people who think they can’t draw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeakf7PigNQ In my opinion, she takes the scary out of everything. Another art journaling guru of mine. Her book is the BEST.
