Me and some earphones


I can´t seem to fit my whole head into these drawings - the papers are too small!

12,5 x 15,5 cm, Staedtler triplus fineliners and water on Fabriano Artistico hot press paper.

This is my favorite of the three. Great sketch with lots of personality!

Ooh, this is a moody one - and more flattering than your previous self-portraits! Love the eyes. Interesting choice of colours, too.

Love this! It's the best of the three, in my humble opinion!

Kathleen said...

Yep I'm voting for the green you -- my favorite so far too.

I like this one best too! I thought I ruined a Staedtler pen by getting it wet in the wash I made with it, perhaps a different type? Did you use yours when the wash was completely dry? Enjoyed the worker series very much! Continued success!

ooh Nina, LOVE the shadows on your face!

Nancy Van Blaricom said...

Ohhh, this is my favorite also. Very moody. You've done a wonderful job on this. Very experssive eyes.

Oh this is cool! I haven't tried my self portrait yet, may have to do that. Of course I may not show anyone either, I don't know if mine would be anywhere near this good.

Love this one, too, Nina! I love the line/wash quality, and your expression is, well, SO expressive.

Anita Davies said...

Oooh, mine too!

It's nice to know someone with your skill sometimes runs out of room on the paper. Makes me feel a little better for not getting it right when I want to.
