Self Portrait




















18" x 24" Pencil on paper

This self portrait was cropped from a larger photograph of me at sunset with the Tasman Sea in the background. The exact location is the grounds of the Coastal Palms Apartment in Motueka, New Zealand. After arriving there we went out back to explore our surroundings. It was somewhat cloudy, and the tide was out, but it was still a beautiful view, and I was happy to be near the ocean.

Thanks Jeni! Getting back to the basics of drawing, and being open to drawing myself is the best preparation I know for painting.
