Selfies, again

The usual parade of glum and suspicious late night portraits… Sherry says the third one is how I’ll look when I’m seventy! In the second one my mouth is my third hand, holding the extra brush-pen I’m using. By the next one I’d used elastic to attach two brush-pens together, creating a reversible double-ended ink-brush, much easier to use, if a little odd looking… The first one was done using Derwent Inktense pencils, currently challenging bush-pens as my favourite sketching medium; a dab of water and line becomes tone.

    Interesting how the eyes will change as well as the mouth – try it!!
