week 2: self — in 20 minutes

I tend to put too much pressure on myself… to do everything and do it perfectly. It’s ridiculous. So… I set a timer for this drawing… 15 minutes to draw, 5 minutes to mess with it. No chance of perfection!

Posting this is kind of a huge deal for me since I’ve never posted a picture of myself. I figure I’m still mostly anonymous with a drawing that I did in 20 minutes… and if I freak out, I can always take it away… ha!

I think I look about 16 (and I am not)… but I do think it looks like me. I guess it doesn’t really matter… you don’t have any basis for comparison! (Well, three of you do…)

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Lovely, Sandra! Though I’m jealous of the three who’ve apparently seen your face! 😝 I really do need to start drawing. I say that all the time, lol. Yours is so good for 15 minutes. And giving yourself a time limit is such a good idea.

    That’s fantastic! I bet that’s exactly what you looked like at 16. 😘 Even more fantastic that you drew it so fast!

    Awesome! And quite coquettish 😉 Always so jealous of people who are able to draw portraits – mine always end up looking like some disfigured cartoon character!

  12. Take this with a grain of salt because I’m a terrible artist…but I think this is lovely! And your idea to set a timer on your project is brilliant. I too am a perfectionist and will continue to poke and prod at something until it’s perfect, which of course rarely happens, so it stresses me out. The perfectionist in me thinks the perfectionist in you is doing a pretty good job though!

  14. Wonderful, S! So good for 15 minutes! I can draw trees and rocks, but portraits are way out of my league, unless they’re smiley faces 😀 Thank you for sharing!

    Beautiful picture, Sandra! Setting a timer is an excellent idea. I also tend to spend far too much time trying to make something perfect.
