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.
