Today a selfie of a different sort. I was putting my shoes on and waiting for Dick to drive me to my massage therapy appointment and I was sitting on a “kids’ stool” left from Dick’s grandma, that sits in the kitchen. I thought it would be fun to sketch my feet. (In the 1990s I did a whole series of portraits just of people’s feet and every now and then I feel the urge to revisit. It seemed the natural way to do a selfie.)
I’m wearing my baggy Gramicci pants that are actually a faded brown, but they do have SPLATS of paint and ink on them like that. I used a Sakura Pigma Sensei Liner with Montana Acrylic Marker in the background. The “paint” on the pants was my finger dabbed into a watercolor pan.
I was working in a Flexbook Sketchbook and I really just need some free time from computer issues, eldercare, and work to get up the review, so it will be coming soon. This is a smaller pocket size that is about 6 x 8 inches and pretty much the perfect size for carrying around. I turned it on the fore edge because the other half of the spread has a stamping ink test (also coming up soon) and I couldn't get the width on a single page.
I was struck by the negative spaces. We have large tiles covering the kitchen floor and I omitted that detail.
