This is not a self portrait.
It is more of a portrait of how I was feeling.
I am working on a monster picture and no matter what I do I just cant get it right. Colours, poses, media…nothing works, I know what I want, its just not working. I will get it one day, just not yet.
In a momment of frustration I scratched out a figure having a bit of a sook. The idea being that I would put all my grumpiness into this picture, screw it up and throw it all away.
Well, he didn’t make it that far and I ended up putting some colour into him. Now he can sit forever having his little HARRRUMPF!
Coloured graphite, watercolour pencils and some pastel on A4 printer paper.
