Self portrait, watercolors & ink.
I’ve been pretty inattentive, working a lot and not making time for art. At the moment, I’m playing around with the idea of putting together a visual resume, and this watercolor emerged from that endeavor.
Discovered recently in one of my old sketchbooks, while scrounging up a few illustration samples; the watercolor background was originally a scrap left over from another project, and I remember quickly painting the typewriter with some acrylic paint that I didn’t want to waste.
I thought this spontaneous/improvised little piece might be a nice way to jump back into this blog after a substantial hiatus. Sometimes my obsessive, perfectionist, controlling artistic habits actually get in the way of making things and sharing them with other people, and the joy I got from stumbling across this hastily created watercolor is a good reminder to just go, make, do, share, and delight in doing so.
