blogtoberfest day 13 - self-portrait day.
yesterday tinniegirl suggested a self-portrait day, where we all reveal what we look like in real life to one another (eek!). i took this to mean make a self portrait... i was later corrected on twitter but encouraged to make one anyway :D
so out came my media, i couldn't choose because, as you can see, i was a little spoilt for choice...
dry pastels, paints, pencils, markers, water colour pencils, you name it, i've got it!
and then what size to choose? i had both an A4 and A3 sketchbook... while i was deciding, i found some sketches i'd done for one of my subjects in year 12. they're not from memory, we had to copy them from an image. would you like to see?
ok so maybe i never got that last one finished... i'm not very good at completing things i start ha ha!
i decided to have a crack with some dry pastels, i've always liked them but they drive me insane when they smudge all over the place!
so then i though i'd have a crack with some watercolour pencils... according to the boyfriend, it's a little paler than me in real life and sadder, but not an entirely inaccurate representation.
so i thought i'd show you me in real life too, that way you can decide for yourself! that's my friend kat, she's amazing!
pop on over to tinniegirl's to join in the portraiture fun and see some other head-shots
hope you're all having a happy blogtoberfest!
ps. if you haven't already... definitely enter my giveaway. it ends tomorrow and i've just put the prizes together!!! excitement plus!
