Self portrait 1

This is the first in a 3-part series of self portrait assignments. Each is supposed to show a different face or expression. This first one shows just a straight expression. For this I used my graphite pencils, which have been sorely neglected this term. Also used were erasers to pull out lights and highlights in the hair, and dry paint brushes for blending on the face (since I didn’t have any clean big tortillons, an early attempt with Kleenex proved nonviable, and I didn’t want to leave finger-streaks in the graphite).
