Self Portrait at Lots Road Studio, Graphite, 2007-2010

drawing graphite me

I have been working on this piece for too long I think, and being a self portrait I got to a stage I wasn't seeing myself again but someone else. I think this is one of the dangers of overworking a piece. Nevertheless, I'll start another one but learn from this experience.

But please those of you out there who know me very well, I need your feedback, what do you think went wrong. Already, I have noted the right side of my cheek seems to be swollen.....There may be other things please I need to get over this self portrait hoodoo, so be as cruel as possible, I need to learn.

For the whole of this piece I have used only graphite on a very stubborn paper, that I might not use again.
