Artetc – Portraits

Merry and I have been planning our Artetc days, this worked really well for us in the past when we did our bits on Architecture so we decided to work that way again.

For the next few weeks we are working on Portraits and People.

Whilst Merry nipped out to register Ben, we got started.

Firstly we chatted about proportions of faces, where the eyes, nose and mouth sits on the face and drew out a basic oval shape, adding on a horizontal line across the middle for the eye line and a vertical line down the middle for the centreline. We added basic features in proportion to get an idea how to construct a face drawing.

We then went onto fold three sheets of A4 into six squares. On one we drew out six eye shapes, on another six mouths and finally six nose shapes.

I then asked them to create a full face using some of the examples of the features they had practised. They all did really well 🙂

Next session we will be looking at body proportions, drawing hands, feet and hair and then pulling it all together to create a character.
