Here is a sketch I did this morning of myself. I had a page left in my watercolor notebook so I did this. It is on Cotman watercolor paper. Its done from a photo of myself taken last summer on a Ferry.

It took less than 15 minutes to do. Its the first time I have drawn a good self portrait out of upteen tries.. Spare of the moment it was!

Often I grab whatever notebook or paper closest to me when I get an idea.

9x12 Cotman watercolor paper, All surface graphite pencil.
