We had a two day workshop of self portraits which a fun and amazing time with all sorts of portrait artists coming out of the woodwork!
Today we did studies of roosters. Wash background and a soft chalk application resulted in some stunning specimens.
We guided the artists through various lettering techniques and they designed their own form of lettering and message. We had fun and the artists took to their own styles of words and images.
For portraiture in this art club session we used a photocopy of the artists faces and tracing paper to explore the self portraits. The differences were fantastic.
Nature is always such a wonderful study for drawing, the colours and textures around us provide a perfect pallet for our artists.
