Oh dear...

I’ve been sat in the Bartholomew Rooms today, invigilating in the current art exhibition…very quiet…I was going to take in some paints and work on my next swirling watercolour, but there’s a limited amount of table space and I couldn’t be bother to take in all the bits I needed. So, again inspired by Lorna, I decided to take in a pencil, paper and a small mirror and have a go at a self portrait…how very out of practice I am lol. This makes me look like my grandmother…and lovely as she is, I’m not sure it’s a look I want to cultivate. However it was a fun exercise for a few hours :)…swirling watercolours tomorrow though I think :)

Oh dear indeed. lol. Its interesting you have concentrated on detail on everywhere except the face ;-)I thinkits the smooth skin-ness that is deceiving the eye into thinking its female. Draw a moustache and Lorna is right, you would have J.

Are you saying I don’t have gorgeous smooth skin like a girl ;)

I’ll show it to Jack and see what he thinks :) See you both later :)
