PORTRAITS: The Rule of Thirds

Yesterday the class made portraits of each other. First students drew a skull which was projected on a screen. The skull drawings were then reworked with a classmate's portrait over the top. The objective was to avoid caricature and to create a solid, dimensional portrait exploring a combination of mark-making techniques. Darryl's drawing above exhibits additive and reductive techniques as well as a wide range of values. This is a very powerful and visceral image. The portrait is heavy visually as well as emotionally.
