Self Portrait Line Drawing Plus Watercolor

 Here’s a variation of yesterday’s post, with a simpler approach to the double lines and softer colors to let the drawing stand out.
1. I drew very light grid lines to help center my face on the watercolor paper. I started with sketching the head and neck.
2. The facial features were added very lightly with a pencil.
3. I used a fine point black Sharpie to fairly quickly trace all the lines, not once but twice. I made an effort draw over the same line, but because I did it with some speed they were a little bit off, which is the goal. Not sloppy, but not precise either. Giving a limited amount of time for tracing should keep things moving along. When complete, all is painted in a realistic manner with watercolor paint.
