I started this series of watercolors of mushrooms about a month ago, so these photos are from then. Most of these grow locally in the Fall(my father is an avid mushroom hunter and I sometimes tag along). I guess I just kind of like the style of just recording plant life is in very descriptive fashion, or something along those line.
I am attempting to make a self portrait for a friend I correspond with through the mail and haven’t actually seen in years. I also haven’t painted a self portrait in years, let alone drawn or painted any figures. I don’t know if its my diminished skill with the subject matter, or my poor self image that resulted in these crappy illustrations. But I thought they were pretty funny, I did a few more and couldn’t help chastising myself each time I made a unflattering stroke. Lol.
