Portraits 1: pencil & peers - resemblance

Over the next few weeks we're going to be taking a closer look at portraiture.  

By unpicking how to read visual art, we will be able to piece together how to make a depiction of a person using a variety of visual language.

This week we looked at resemblance.  We captured likeness through observational drawing using pencil.
Much easier to say than do.

Below are the images of the group and at the bottom are some very quick sketches made at the end of the session.

Well done everyone! 
Next week we will introduce colour to a more familiar subject.
