In case anybody was wondering about the silly self portrait I put previously on this blog, this is it's sketch study . I guess I have a lot of time on my hands to reflect and dig old stuff, but it is fun. This sketch I did by looking into a mirror. I pictured myself like Norman Rockwell or Van Gogh. I don't usually smoke a pipe, it is just a childish act I guess. Any ways, the painting came different than what I expected because I was working on hot-pressed (smooth) paper, and the colors were running like crazy. I couldn't control the drying time or the hard edges. But it was a fun piece. I know it looks silly, but I will try to do it again when I feel interested!
