In today’s lesson we started to look at portraits. We first looked at Amedeo Modigliani’s portraits to get a feel for the different ways he used for his portraits. My art teacher had printed out some line drawings of a lady for us to practice our skin tones on. We had brought in some pictures cut out of magazines or photos of ourselves to use as colour reference. My art teacher advised us to use oil paints for this exercise as they are easier to blend than, Watercolours or Acrylics.
I’ve posted my portrait under the Practice Pieces tab, I’m not happy with the portrait as it stands but, I am really happy with the skin tones and so is my teacher.
