Egon Schiele self portrait

Step up to the mirror, it’s time to do a self-portrait! Make faces or practice your cool-as-a-cucumber look, or try one of each using different materials. Self-portraits are great practice and these are meant to be quick and simple – just look at Egon Schiele’s example (nice work, Egon!). Try a contour line drawing (like Egon did) or simple brush strokes that frame your face, or smudge your way along with a graphite pencil. These don’t need to be perfect, just a reflection of your sweet self!

Wet Paint will have several different drawing materials to choose from at a 15% discount for this week (2/26-3/4). Try the oh-so-popular Pentel Pocket Brush Pen (and it’s refillable!), the smooth range of Palomino Blackwing Pencils, or the trusty classic Sharpie marker!  Out of ink?  You can buy new stuff here!
And please feel free to share what materials you end up using. There are endless options out there to choose from!
