Draw 4 portraits on page 22 of your sketchbook. Divide the page into 4 portrait shaped rectangles if you prefer but you don’t have to divide your page with lines if you prefer a cleaner/clearer looking page. Think about your unique Profile how will you use sensitively mark making to show tone (light, shade, shadow) and create four realistic looking self-portraits. How will you use loose hatches cross hatches and basket hatched to create form (three dimensional shape).
Use the following devices to help make each portrait look different;
- Draw your face from an interesting angle each time.
- Use light from a candle/lamp, torch, window or mobile phone.
- Change your expression.
- Draw your face at different times of the day.
