Self Portrait Progress


Last week I mentioned that I had begun a new blog, Artists Paint Themselves,  to showcase artists' self portraits. I've had a lot of great responses and they are there for you to view. Today Katherine Tyrrell has mentioned it on her well known art blog Making a Mark. Please take a look at Artists Paint Themselves, and if you have a self portrait, just email me and we'll get it posted. Thanks!

As you can see, hardly anything has been done this past week. I just couldn't get focused. Today seems better, and I've begun two paintings. I'll tackle this later this week.

Sorry I havn't done mine yet--not much painting time this week, unfortunately. I love this drawing! Looking forward to seeing your finished piece.

I love it yet! What a funny and great painting. Can't await the big finish.

this is wonderful - i can't wait to see it finished!

thank you for visiting my blog and for saying such nice things - to answer your question i do the ink first and then watercolor. I also work in acrylics but these small pieces have been taking up a lot of my time lately - please visit me again when you can!
