In an attempt to be prepared, I have been sketching a little here and there and this morning I sat down in front of the mirror to try a 30 minute self portrait. I tried to capture the pose below, although it is super hard to take a picture of what you see in the mirror. No lipstick, or colour - I didn't brush my hair or anything.
|maybe I will try to sketch from this picture later and compare!|
Really looking is hard work, it is natural to start to draw what you see in your mind, instead of what you actually see in the mirror. That is the first thing I will need to work on with the next drawing!
