Maybe I'll call it "Expressionism"

Last night, I was tired. I got to drawing late in the evening - after the endless chores. So, I wasn't at my artistic best. Here's the self-portrait attempt from a mirror. As you can see, I was irritated. It doesn't look like me, but I think you can see the expression on the face. Then, I had another go...

As is clear, I got more frustrated. So, while these aren't likenesses in the traditional sense, they are expressionist - for they certainly convey the correct emotion! (At least I had a good laugh looking at them tonight. It makes me want to take pen and paper tomorrow...)
