Another self portrait

The last month and a half have been so busy I've never made
it to my drawing group on Tuesday nights. Plus with COVID, it's
been hard to have models come and pose in my studio.  I'd like to
figure out how I could do it.  The last model I painted live posed
on the back porch more than social distanced and it was far from ideal
for either of us, although she was wonderful.

All that is to explain why I'm drawing a second self-portrait.  I'm
here. And I'm quite helpful when it comes to assuming 
poses.  In this one the model has wet hair and a towel around her neck.
I am grateful for her help.

Have a loving your life day.

Hi Evelyn,

I did this with a photo. I could try a mirror. I have in the past. But I put this
photo on my iPad and held the iPad up with my laptop. Lol.
