#1 Sunday Self-Portrait (sketch)%900 %UTC, %2019, %0:%May %pThe Mirror Portraits
Just joined a lovely group where you post self-portraits done only on Sunday, and absolutely not from a photograph. It was such a busy day, but, after an early evening meditation, I dove into a quick graphite sketch as the light was fading - it's page size. The self-portrait is a bit fierce, but hey I 'am' concentrating! I look forward to some self-exploration in the months ahead and seeing many wonderful self-portraits by members of the group.
Also, I need to re-take this since I hadn't balanced the lighting for the photo, or I might not.
Lalitha on Veena - watercolour sketch%915 %UTC, %2019, %0:%May %p
The sketch was ok. The watercolour, to my eye, over-worked. And then, dang, I started experimenting with varnishes and shouldn't have. On location (an urban sketch), a dark crowded room. Best part: Lalitha, a master of veena, was magnificent.
