This week we started looking at the individual features of the face. Mouths seemed like a good place to start and I was blown away by the standard of drawings you all produced. You did some incredible work! We started with just using an HB pencil and a few “mouth guidelines” to get started. Then varying the amount of pressure used to create a range of tones. Then we used pen and cross hatching technique to create different tones whilst drawing mouths in different positions and from a variety of angles. Finally we experimented with ink wash by brushing water over certain areas of pen to create a more intense tone. Next week we’ll be looking at noses and trying out another new technique.
Looking forward to it! See you soon.
