Two Portraits

I do a lot of self portraits not out of vanity but because I can sit in front of a mirror and have myself as a subject. My daughter immediately knew this was me.

Kerfe’s collage on top and mine on the bottom.

Portrait of my dad from an old photo. I usually catch something of him and have done a few drawings of him.

The black paper continues to fascinate me. Skin tones can be different layers of color. Actually everything can be layered. You do need to always keep a very sharp point which enables many textures.
