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.
