Was feeling a bit lazy so I decided to do a credit card size self portrait. That was an interesting challenge. You can’t get lost in the details, that’s for sure.
Didn’t even know she existed until a few months ago, when I bought an online illustration course and the teacher mentioned her as one of his artistic influence.
I hadn’t even realized there was an exhibition of her work near Lisbon and I almost missed it, but luckily it was extended until next Tuesday.

I normally feel very comfortable with my grey hair but life felt so grey with lockdown ( though in my line of work we can’t really work remotely) that I felt the need for a bit of colour to cheer me up. So I decided to try and dye my hair at home. I was a bit worried because my hair is so curly, I wondered if I would be able to cover it evenly.
The day after I bought the dye, they announced the hairdressers were going to reopen the week after, but you have to make an appointment and hairdressers are fully booked until July.
So this Sunday I managed to make some time for experiment and I am quite happy with the result.
Plus the red colour lifts my spirits up.

Yet another Sunday self portraitWas feeling pretty lazy but I am really trying to make at least a self portrait a week this year so I popped the mirror on my side on the sofa and started playing around with infinite painter. I was planning on slapping on some colour, but I liked the linework so I left it at that.
