It's been awhile since I've used a red pen for my self-portrait. Throughout this project, I have made many discoveries about art materials - namely, I've found some that I didn't realize I would love using as much as I do.
I have been surprised at how much I enjoy working with a red ballpoint pen. I think that for me, the color is incredibly bold and can be symbolic in so many different ways. And frankly, the material simply handles in a way that I like.
