...because I need a break from the self-portrait hell I'm currently experiencing (drawing class homework - draw a contour line self-portrait using a mirror). I suppose drawing is like writing, speaking a foreign language, or any other type of creative pursuit: some days you are on fire, others you struggle to perform even the simplest task without feeling incompetent. That's the nature of the beast, though, so I'm calling it a night and hoping for more inspired lines tomorrow.

You already reached the level of drawing portraits in your study? I think it didn’t take too long, right ? I would like to see that self-portraits, are you thinking about uploading it? :D

Nice color set, I also enjoyed the Orange post :)
