Day 237

This portrait didn't start out to be nearly as loose as it has turned out. In fact, I planned for it to be a fairly straight-forward line drawing with brushed ink on ordinary paper. But something happened: a very large drop of ink fell from my brush and landed just below one of the eyes.

Rather than start over, I decided to run with it. I dropped more ink onto the paper. More ink was thrown onto the paper. The hair was drawn in with extrememly loose lines. And it's turned out to be a rather interesting representation of me...
