Inspiration Avenue's theme this week is Self-Portrait.
This piece departs from what I usually post work-wise, both stylistically and medium-wise. It was done with dry pastels, and it's got more of a painting feel than the usual line-work and inky stuff I like to do now.
Totally different than most of the work I do now. I wanted to post a more similar to my usual style, black and white self portrait I had done. However, 'tis not with me, and I had already scanned this one in-- so, I thought to submit it.
I did it a few years ago, and while I haven't worked in pastels recently, remembering how fluid this piece was to make is inspiring-- maybe I'll at least partially return to pastels, to at least use them in mixed media, in the future. Wanted
