Quick journal self-portrait


For so long I’ve painted faces to sell, that I’ve kind of forgotten how to do them quickly, loosely, just for me. The point of doing it for me is I don’t need to make it ‘good’, which means I can play around a lot more, and accidentally find good stuff. I painted this with watercolour, which I rarely use, and suddenly it all came together. Love the roughness of it. It didn’t take long either. I ripped it out and stuck it straight into my journal, adding bits of textured tape and paper I had lying around my studio. Later, I’ll write on this page, add something to the oval label at the top.
