Day 7 of the 366 Daily Sketch Challenge

Funny story -

I sketched this self portrait 
while looking in the mirror. 

Here is my simple line sketch 

Then I added watercolours
without looking at the mirror and,

like magic, 

this sultry vixen appeared instead of me! 

So much for the self portrait. hehe

I do like how she turned out though. 
I'd like to think that there is a hint of me in there somewhere.
The ear, perhaps? hehe

So that's it for today's portrait.


  1. I like your "self portrait". I like do the same (about me :) ) but I'm not so consistent like you.
    Good work, I'll visit you until the end of th year

    1. Thanks! I can't guarantee that I can keep up the daily pace but will see how I go. I enjoy your sketches too...I am an email subscriber. :)

  2. Well done and beautiful, just like you! :)

    1. Awwwwwww, thanks for the sweet comment, Alexandra. :)

  3. I think it looks like you, the eyes and lips do at least :)i think its the slick hair that make the portrait look sultry

    1. Thanks, Jen. Yes, I also think the slick, dark hair adds to the sultry look. :)

  4. Love seeing your ink sketches and then you add color and POW - it's a perfect portrait!
