Drawing: Portraits from Life

In Drawing and Studio Art class we will be working in our sketchbook drawing portraits of students in class from life.  We'll start with a full page portrait of someone in class and then we'll fill a page with smaller drawings of other students at different angles like the demonstration I created in my sketchbook above.  The finished drawings will be due on Thursday at the beginning of class.

Here are some of the drawing tips for portraits from Craftsy we talked about yesterday in case you forget.  Remember start from the interior, make sure your proportions are correct, and draw a sketch before you make the lines dark and more permanent!
