Impressionistic Selfie

I took this selfie of me wearing my daughters glasses.  (I wear glasses, but they’re nowhere near as cool as hers)  I really wanted to paint the other night, and I only had about 30-45 minutes to do it in, so I got my acrylics and a 6″ x 9″ watercolor pad and settled on that selfie.

I painted loosely, mostly dabbling the paint on and mixing it on the paper.  I fought the urge to render, and I was pleased with the effect of painting so loosely.  It’s a really rewarding way to paint.  Reminded me of rotoscoping… well, sort of.

I have been busy! Seems I posted last in July of last year. Holy cow! Well, not much has happened in the way of art, other than doodlings and sketches here and there. I’ll see about going back and capturing some of that, then posting it later on. Meanwhile, this happened at lunch today with a Micron 005 pen on the back of one of my old business cards.
