Self Portrait Against the Wall

Time for another self portrait. I felt the need to do one today. Something about painting Dad's old cameras led me to a self portrait. I also took two pictures in the process, the sketch and after rubbing off the masking fluid.
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

Terrific, Sue. I like the unusual pose and the treatment of the hands--well done!

Sheila Vaughan said...

A wonderful portrait Susan. Like Don I love the pose and the unfussy yet confident treatment of the materials.

Martha Miller said...

NICE one, Sue! Way to go! I love the composition, and how big your hands are, and the fire colors that are under the drawing board as if fueling the piece! Thanks for showing us the process, I love seeing that evolution.

HI DON, Thank you and for stopping by!

Thank you, SHEILA, I'm glad it appears confident!

Hi MARTHA, I don't know why, but I just took a few pictures as I went and thought I'd post them.
