March 2015 - Art with Mr Shaskey

On Thursday 26th March we had a sketching session with Mr Shaskey in the hall. He showed us how to draw a face because we will be painting portraits next week. See if you can follow the instructions to draw a face.

An oval was drawn and half way down the oval we made 2 lines for the placement of the eyes.
The eyes were drawn in an oval shape and the top of the eye.

The iris and pupil were drawn. The pupil was coloured in but a small spot was left so the eyes twinkled.

The iris was drawn with lots of small lines at the top and not so many down the bottom.
The bottom of the nose was found half way between the eyes and the chin and was as wide as the space between the eyes.

The mouth was placed half way between the nose and chin and it was as wide as the pupils of the eyes.
The bottom lip was drawn in a scoop and the top was drawn with a small scoop under the middle of the nose.
The middle of the lip was drawn next.
The ears were added and they were as long as the distance from the middle of the eyes to the bottom of the nose and it narrowed towards the bottom.

Eye brows were added and a light line was drawn above the eyebrows to mark the place for the bottom of the hair.

We learnt a lot about drawing a person's face.
