I've never heard of using 2 mirrors either. Everything I can find on the net talks about using 1 mirror - not a single mention of 2. Besides I haven't a clue as to how you would use 2 mirrors anyway. If they reflected on each other you would have infinite images which would probably not be what the artist wanted - at least for a typical self portrait. Could the 2 have been a typo when they really meant 1?

In looking this up I discovered this article about Rembrandt using mirrors and lenses for his self portraits and tracing the image. It also speaks of only 1 mirror with a diagram.

Re: Drawing Room May 2017

I've never heard of using 2 mirrors for a self portrait either. The only thing I can think of is positioning the mirrors so you could see both sides of your face in profile and drawing two profiles. Could that have been what was meant?

On another subject we've lost our beautiful sunshine and are back to our cloudy norm. It's still warm though so I can't complain too much

Being self employed and having multiple heart problems, I tend to take lots of short naps. Fortunately my employer is very understanding and supports me entirely in my behavior.

Self-employed. Me, too, though I've cut back on the billable hours and I'm no longer seeking or accepting new clients.

Re: Drawing Room May 2017

At times it feels like self-unemployed to be honest ... but it is what it is.

Re: Drawing Room May 2017

I'm a "so called" lady of leisure - can't work due to several health issues - but at least it gives me lots of time to pursue my many hobbies. My hubby calls me a serial hobbyist, at least it's not as bad as being a serial killer !
