A Drawing a Day – Week 12

Three months!  The equinox has passed, spring is here (supposedly) and today will be my 84th drawing.  This week has focused on the domestic and the personal.  I have been watching a BBC show about amateur painters and have been inspired to have a go at portraits…… Wow is that hard! Self portraits too! Well I look like a crazy, angry person, maybe I am?! I have an illusion of my appearance which is shattered by my drawings of myself – at last I can be happy that my drawings are rubbish!  What a lark this is……………….
