Day 25

One of my favorite benefits of making a self-portrait is that the artist has absolute control over the situation. The is no complaining about holding a pose for too long, there is no need to ask the model to "move just a bit to the left," and the artist decides exactly what the face will look like.

I wanted to do something just a bit different today, both in the facial expression and in the process itself. I also continue to be excited when I have an idea in mind for what the artwork could look like, but then the ultimate outcome changes (for the better) as the artistic process unfolds.

  1. You come up with an idea you ever run out of ideas? I really liked yesterday's whimsical cartoonish image, but today is very intriguing as well!
