Although it is nice to draw out of the imagination, you never know what or who might hitchhike a ride. I was deliberately trying to NOT draw my features on this one . . but I think as artists something of ourselves always comes thru so that everything to some degree is a self portrait.
It has been refreshing to switch to another medium and pastel can be a lot of fun.
Pastel on black Canson paper.
