self portrait sketches 6x9

 Apparently my favorite subject is myself. I am after all the most available and also cheapest model I know. These two little sketches were done 3 years apart. The top was done in one sitting while the bottom done over a few sittings. They were both started rather spontaneously (my favorite way to start anything). The top was done with a limited palette: Burnt Sienna, Cad Scarlet, Cad orange, Ultramine blue and Titanium white. While the bottom was done with the much broader Incamminati palette consisting of about 20 colors.

  1. Increased brush confidence! Decreased colors. Nice work by you.
