This is a self-portrait, isn't it? Even with the looseness of this wet watercolor, your drawing ability is clear. I like them!

VH McKenzie said...

Thanks, Dan, but I'm afraid it is not a self portrait. I really should draw myself more than I do!

I like working with the wet-into-wet, since it forces me not to get too tight with my drawing. Let's the drawing decide where I'm going, rather than the other way around.

methinks it is your ma...

VH McKenzie said...

Nope, not my mama!

She's just another pretty face....

When I looked at the previous face, I thought;"She's really loving these loose-n-wet drawings!"

VH McKenzie said...

Yes, dinahmow! I am loving the loose-and-wet. Been having a crisis of confidence lately (as opposed to a crisis of conscience!) and decided to free myself from high expectations.

I just spray the paper with water or smear spoonfuls around with a brush, and then I go to town. Some are definitely more successful than others. Heh.

So relaxed... I love this type.

This portrait looks a great deal like Katherine Hepburn!
