Self Portrait Sketch

My boldness continues as I embark on a portrait marathon. Yesterday I drew my daughter Emily, and today I sketched myself. First I drew from an old black and white photo dated 1961 (oh!). The result looked nothing like me, and was so dreadful that I can’t bring myself to include it here. Next I drew myself from a photo taken last fall. It’s a bit crooked here and there, but that makes it look more realistic, right? I have used colored pencils for this drawing.

Joan portrait sketch

I am trying to psych myself up to begin working on an author/artist website. These days you must think about marketing before you have even completed anything TO market. So much to do,  such infrequent motivation! Maybe I will add some watercolor to this sketch, and see if it still looks like me…
