This was my first time doing a self portrait and doing this technique. I loved your teaching Susannah. If you weren’t so cheerful in your instructions I would have run out the room! im def going to practice and looking forward to getting better! Its so embarrassing at times to show work, but I love how you and Anne always have encouraging words. Brilliant! And thank you x
