Portraits 6: peer portraits, colour & composition

This week we brought together elements of the last few sessions on portraiture.

We considered composition, likeness and colour.  The results below beautifully express different aspects of the subject.

Very well done everyone!

Portraits 5: composition & colour

The Task
  • divide a page of A4 cartridge paper into 8 and using theoretical "how to draw..."  instructions, place faces in different positions in each space.  
  • add strong colour to emphasise composition & perhaps create a narrative 
Lovely work - very well done!

Next week by special request;  ears and eyes.
"F" sharpens to a fine point!
