I drew this last night. It’s titled, “Self Portrait, sitting in bath robe.”
Drawn at 4:19 am because I couldn’t sleep. Arrived home at 1am, went to bed, still up when roommates came home at 2:30. Noise and awake … i drew this.
I draw these self portraits usually after writing in my sketch book. I’m wearing my favorite gettho gold necklace, everyone always tries to guess what it is when they see it. It’s actually an antique developed by some nice hotel in germany and is of two cherries.
I draw from life because it feels good and is a way to capture a moment. It is not exact and unlike a photograph. You only have a few moments to do so, if your lucky, a few minutes.
