After the slide lecture, students made self-portraits in their medium of choice.  Here is another incredibly expressive drawing from Alissa Griffin.  Strong mark-making, large scale and dark values make for a very powerful self-portrait. Krishna Chaitanya's drawing (middle) exhibits strong volumes and expressive tonalities.  The inclusion of the headphones adds a touch of the contemporary. Hollister Nadeau's drawing (bottom) presents you with a fairly typical frontal view.  Yet the interesting element in the drawing is the negative space and how she has omitted her shoulders.
