Mirror, Mirror... by Kim Blair

Mirror, Mirror
12x9
ink, acrylic in paper


This time I ditched the photos and used a mirror instead.  Looking at myself in a mirror for this sketching session, felt very different from looking at a photo.  The photo allowed me to feel removed from the drawing session, whereas the mirror did not.

Staring at a flesh and blood person, even if in a mirror (and even if it is yourself) made me really think about what I was doing because I was looking at a real person....  It was a very strange experience, but I have to say it was more satisfying/interesting to draw myself using a mirror than using a photo.


This is #7.
