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.

  1. 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.


  2. 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.


  3. Thank you Marcueto, art does the same thing for me. I’m so pleased that you enjoy your visits here. Your comments always give me a boost. Thanks again.
