It has been a while since I posted an assignment from my art class so I thought I would share one of the most difficult things I have ever had to draw. A self portrait.
This self portrait is by no means complete. This is about two hours into the process and it is only just starting to look like me (minus the hair of course)! I found it difficult to stare at my face for two hours. Going through this process I discovered that I looked a lot like my great grandmother. Years ago I drew her wedding portrait and I never noticed the resemblance until drawing my self-portrait. Next time I am home in Edmonton I will take a photograph of the drawing (it lives at my grandmother’s house).
