Chinese Brush Painting/ Self Portrait

Self Portrait
Watercolour in sketchbook
This is one of the little self portrait sketches I have been making on a daily basis. I include it here as it's watercolour and I was trying out an unusual technique I discovered. I covered the whole page with a light wash and then drew into it using one of those pencil erasers. This makes a rather nice soft line and I like the idea of drawing with an eraser.

This subject appealed to my perverse sense of humour.


  1. Heheh...I like your sense of humour! :-)

  2. I like the technique you used for your self portrait, it creates such an interesting surface.

  3. Like this one - and your sense of humor! Maybe the Guggenheim will pick this one up as well ;)

    Thanks Paul, picture received today.
    The ultimate trifecta is that I bought the picture.
