One week later, and of course the skin on our (of-not-on) self-portraits and those wonderful backgrounds are now crisp-crunchy dry; and of course they still have no hair; they have no eyes, no noses. No smiles.
Time, I think, to do something about that. First, some black paint to separate the (of-not-on) self-portrait from those wonderful backgrounds. Remember, hold the brush like a pencil – and oh-so-carefully you go. All the way round.
And now we need some features; eyes, noses, smiles. Take a look at this shape.
Can you make the same shape? What feature does it remind you of?
Yes, we need two of these – about halfway down. Maybe some eyelashes too.
A ‘L’ for a nose…..
and some bright shiny red…..
for a big happy smile. Some hair – plus a few finishing touches – and now let’s take a look at one or two of our finished (of-not-on) self-portraits. What do you think of these?
Do you like what you see?
There are more of the same in the classroom (soon to be posted proudly on the wall!) Why not stop by sometime and pay someone a compliment?
