In Art and Design we are learning to show ‘mood’ in our figure drawing.
Last week your task was to capture some family members on paper. This week you should try a self portrait! It could be your face, your upper body or your whole body.
Use a mirror to help you or take a photo and work from that. Sketch lightly in pencil first then press harder and add detail when you are happy with the shape.
What mood does the body shape suggest? Relaxed? Tired? Inspired?
Use your pencil with different amounts of pressure to add TONE to your work.
Please feel free to share your work on Twitter, it would be great to see the results!
