Online Drawing Three – Lesson Two

Online Drawing Three Lesson Two is a self portrait, in graphite, using a mirror.

Above is a flat piece of mirror taped off at the edges that I have placed on an easel.

If you would like to borrow (and return!) a flat mirror (I have 5) and an easel (I have 4) email me and I will place one out on my porch for you to pick up at your convenience.

Another option would be to use a round mirror on a stand such as this…

The advantage here is that it needs no stand + you can tilt it until you can see your face.
Of course any mirror leaning against a pile of books or other heavy object will work just as well.
