i draw myself. quite frequently. the one above is from the middle of last year. the one below last week.
the oil painting i did in 2007 i think.
it is an incredible thing to attempt to understand the face. especially trying to step outside of yourself to look at yourself as another might see you.
too much thinking gets in the way. drawing / painting / sculpting helps to switch off all the static. and this is where the real discipline has to come in because achieving that state of mind requires a hell of a lot of practise.
