Faces 18 and 19

So there I am throwing another popje at you after hearing you are still not bored with her! I am back on target and also nearly ready to sent all my popjes of to the gallery.
 

There is something very satisfying about putting Popje's outfits together.
I love sitting at my desk colouring her simple attire in.
Her wardrobe is now stuffed to the top.
I guess she takes after me.




Micro sketch before watercolour.

Oooh and look this is me, 
I don't usually look this serious.


Today I just couldn't get me to smile at me. Why I have no idea but I am smiling now because I did another watercolour, which I so wanted to challenge myself with in the 29 face challenge.

perhaps your self portrait was serious because you were looking at yourself for art.... personality was resting as you focused.

I have noticed in photography too, self portraits are often more serious, as though we capture a part of ourselves that others rarely get to see.

each piece is wonderful to see.

OOw I love Popjes new outfit :D...and now you know why my photo's of me look so serious lol I think it's something to do with us being able to recognise a false smile, and when we pose the smile lasts too long and becomes false....either that or we really are moody mares :D XXX
