Something different to take a little break…
This is from an old black and white picture of me that I like.I don’t know if this still qualifies as self portrait.
I did start with black watercolor, then black ink, then I refined the picture with black and withe colored pencils, then I used dried pastels.
The paper is a technical paper that is translucent, I will make some tests with different papers under. It was working great with all the mixed media.
I played with the idea that my source was an old picture adding the borders.
