Me and My Shadow: Self-Portrait #2 (after Chantal Joffe)
This is done with pencil on watercolor paper. I was originally going to paint over it after I drew in front of the bathroom mirror, but I like the texture the paper gives the pencil so much, I decided to leave it as is. Although the pencil makes it less exactly “in the style of” it certainly captures for me the feeling that I got from Joffe’s painting.
I will do one where I paint over the pencil in the future though.
And one more inspired by a Joffe portrait to come.
