Last night the class drew portraits from each other. The previous evening students made drawings of a skull. The skull drawing was reworked last night with the portrait drawn over the top. The benefit of the skull is to provide a loose structure as well as to get the paper a little dirty. Each of the drawings above address the underlying structure of the face. In addition, they illustrate the dark and light pattern within the eyes, under the nose, lower lip and chin. Without this rhythm portraits may appear too flat.
