Something Completely Different – Paint!

Acrylic Self-Portrait

I got out my paints and did this little self-portrait sketch in acrylics on paper. I hadn’t painted in two years, so I was pleased with how this turned out. After working with colored pencils, it was kind of a relief to work with paints. Painting is so much more forgiving.

    Thanks guys! Your comments are so encouraging. I’m thinking about doing more painting. I’m feeling more of a pull to pen and ink lately. Thanks again for the comments. They mean a lot.

  6. Awesome! Oh how I wish I had some “painting” “sketching” “drawing’ or any “ing” talent in me. Well, I was into “glassblowing” for a year or so in college, so does that count?

    You are happy in this painting…I can see it and feel it. You enjoyed this exercise in creativity very much. I love visiting your blog and scrolling down to see what new surprise I will find.

    Arts does something to my soul…..I can’t quite explain. Thanks so much for sharing.
