Self-Portrait Sketch with Mustache

Self-Portrait Sketch with Mustache.jpg

Anyone who has followed my artwork knows I am most comfortable with flowers and more natural scenes (just take a peek at my Art Originals and you will see). In the spirit of learning new things and pushing the boundaries a bit, I am sketching faces. And, for an even further leap for me, here is a self-portrait with mustache. (We are studying Dali in the art class I am taking).

While likenesses are still shaky, I am beginning to understand that faces, like everything else, are made up of varying shapes. So, even if this does not look exactly like me, I am happy that the drawing is obviously a person holding some hair over her face.

What new things are you bringing into your art practice? And how are you coping with it?
