I read somewhere that to practise faces it's a good idea to do lots of self-portraits. Got to be pretty hard to offend yourself... right?
I've had a photo in my scrap box for ages that printed out badly and to big. So I stuck that down on one of my paint mop-up pages in my journal. Then gessoed and painted over the top in acrylics.
Decidedly dodgy face. But still a face. If nothing else it hammers home my need to practise and draw every day. This is going to eventually have some kind of journalling around it about my love of paint (that's a paintbrush in my mouth - original photo here.)

Enjoying the process so far - it's certainly getting me thinking! Thanks for stopping by today :)
