Self portrait after run: March 13, 2009

About a year ago I got into a habit of drawing myself right after I come back from my run (about 3 times a week). I really mean right after - I stretch and draw - no shower allowed before drawing ;) It means that portraits are done QUICKLY and that I do not really care too much about results since all I have energy and patience for is to look and record, look again, record again, fill the page more-or-less and jump in the shower ;)

It was one of the things I did to establish a daily sketching habit. A lot of things I did then did not help - but this one stuck with me. Now I learned a lot about establishing habits - but that's a separate topic ;)

I almost never show these portraits as they sometimes are scary and lots of times look like me only to my eye.

I decided to show this one to see how much interest it will get and if I should show more ;) - let me know ;)
