Self-Portrait - Portrait Workshop...(con't)

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's my first self-portrait effort and, as you'll notice, the contrast is up way high, thus minimizing the need to shade in the wrinkles...I think I will either search for photos from years back, or remain absolutely and utterly daft at learning how to draw wrinkles and sagging skin - after all, it's a r t ....right? Right.

Aah, I think drawing wrinkles is SOOO difficult! I always do it, and then I´m looking twenty years older in my self-portraits ...

great art! i'm with you about not learning to draw wrinkles (unless they're someone else's - well, they do add such character).

Wonderful self portrait! I almost signed up for Pam's drawing class but decided to go with her journal offering. Love what you did! Your recent collage art is amazing, too! Looking forward to seeing more of your work from Pam's class.

Oh, Trudi **chuckle** You're a hoot! Honestly, I think you've done a remarkable job with your first lesson and this self-portrait. Can't wait to see more from this class. Hugs, Terri xoxo

Very good! I'm addicted to faces/portraits, and this one is wonderful. Who cares about wrinkles. We don't need to be that authentic, do we?

Great job! It looks like you, but the photo does not do you justice.
