After a rather long break due to the Covid pandemic, I restarted my classes in October. It is lovely to have people come to my house again and experiment with different materials and learn new techniques. I have 2 classes, one on Wednesday morning and one on Friday morning. My students have a big say in what they want to do and learn and my Friday group choose to draw faces.
After an initial session on learning the proportions of a face, we all made a self-portrait. It is quite challenging to do this but I was very impressed by my students' attitude as well as their results. I will publish all their drawings on my Facebook page when they are complete, link below.
Drawing is one of the activities I can join in whereas painting I am busy offering advice, changing the water and drying the paintings ready for the next stage.
So here is my self-portrait. Drawing oneself takes a lot of concentration so there are no smiles and the resulting portraits can be rather harsh. I do look very intense but then that is what the challenge makes you do. Someone I know well said to me that she could see it is me but it doesn't look like me as I am always smiling. I thought that was lovely.
