Watercolor Self Portrait

Well, I finally did it. I have been thinking about it for a couple of years. LOL! Such angst… This is in my sketchbook, 9×12 140 lb. watercolor paper. This is from a photo taken a couple of years ago.

If you know me, does it look like me? I think it looks much better than me. But, hey! That’s okay!

I have been playing with watercolors and making lots of messes. Here are a few of the better messes.

And the following is the other side of the page from my self-portrait.
