‘Self Portrait’ by Mon Neylan



Pencil on paper, A4

Work produced at Thursday Tonal Self-Portrait Class, 16 April 2020


One of my warm-up contour drawings from the Tonal Self Portrait class. I had just been through a pretty intense miscarriage and it was such a good release from my thoughts. The class was really inspiring and gave me some great focus for my drawing. I know it’s a cliché, but it really helped me on the recovery journey. So this is equally about the picture and a moment in time for me.
