Quarantine Portrait Series: Self Portrait Looking Upward

I am looking forward to trying my ‘facial feature proximity’ technique on live subjects instead of my photo, when shelter in place is over.   It was a bit counterintuitive, when I noticed that my right nostril was really close to my right eye. It was even closer in the photo.  The lesson I take away from this sketch is to trust the relationships between features rather than a knowledge of anatomy (which would not have considered an eye being close to a nostril).
