This is just a bit shocking to me when I really think about it.
It took me 203 self-portraits in this series to actually make one using ink wash. This is a medium that I have loved for years, so it completely escapes me why I would wait so long. I will say, however, that its use even this time is born out of slight laziness; I didn't want to use the pen to to fill in the darkness of the blackbirds, and decided that ink wash would be much quicker. (It was.)
This was a lot of fun - there will be many more...
