29.5 cm x 39.5 cm, conté on cartridge paper.
Date produced: 1988 - 1992, while living at Glenelg (1988-1992).
Drawn directly from life, in a mirror. With this drawing, I was trying for both a good likeness and a good sense of form, especially around the eyes. I set up the mirror to give a view from slightly above, to enhance the mapping of the facial features around the round form of my head.
The drawing was completed in a single four-hour session at night in my old flat at Glenelg.
I am presenting this drawing as both a good representation of me, the person behind these pages, and also a good indication of my technical abilities in recording observations. Most draughtspeople know that accurately drawn portraits demand extremely high orders of analysis and discipline.
