As well as softening the lines in my art, as I did with my 'Daddy's Girl' portrait the other day, in which I didn't use any lines at all, I've been working on simplifying the lines. I really love Picasso's sketches so I've been trying to draw portraits like his

I think this portrait is a pretty good likeness of me, as well as creating the effect I was trying to. It's always a good day when this happens (oh yes, and I got my tattoo in again, which always makes me more than happy)
