Inktober Day 7--Shy

A rare semi self portrait
There could be a few reasons why I seldom, if ever, do selfies or draw/paint self portraits:
  1. I'm suddenly shy when too much attention is focused on me.
  2. There are so many more interesting things to document.
  3. It's just too exhausting to go to the trouble of hair, makeup and lighting.
  4. All of the above.
No filter, makeup, hair styling etc.
So I thought I would do one in my reading spot in the bedroom while lazing around this morning.
Reminds me of those "Killroy was here" drawings my Dad used to do when I was little. :)

    1. Thank you, Joan. :) I got up enough courage to peek over the sketchbook for a cropped selfie! No preliminary drawing. You're right, straight to ink.
