Drawing the Drawer

Self Portrait, 2018, terracotta conte, charcoal pencil and white pastel 
on fawn paper, 35 x 26 cm

This drawing was inspired by the red chalk drawings of the Renaissance artists. I've always thought the hands give physical form to feelings, as if they are mediators between the visible and the invisible. I had the idea of me drawing a profile self portrait since it's how my profile portrait series is being made - by thought and feel.
