Portraits and Photography

In the spring term we will be showing facial expressions in sketches using shade and tone to show an awareness of light and shadow. We will also be using photography as a way to produce art, thinking carefully about what makes the photo interesting.

To begin with we concentrated on creating a self portrait that was in proportion using shading and tone to show an awareness of how light and shadow. We used mirrors to help us with our self portraits. Below are some exmaples of our drawings and there is also a link to a tutoral video which you might want to watch at home to help you practice these skills.
We used all our skills we have been practicing over the last few weeks to sketch a reflection of a digital image. We all drew animal portraits.
