A Watercolour SelfieFriday, January 30, 2015
When you are living with an acutely disruptive teenager as we are, inspiration comes because of desperate times. An assignment to paint selfies with watercolours (to date not completed or begun) led me to the idea of going into my bathroom and painting my face with watercolours (using my index finger) and then pressing a sheet of paper against my face. According to my friend Ian Bateson, tissue paper would produce better results. Another idea I had was to suggest placing one’s face on a scanner and since our printer is a b+w laser printer the result could be painted with water colours to satisfy the school assignment.
