During the past two weeks we have been working with portrait and self portrait at school. It was a good course to start the school year, warming up eyes and hand. We had a lot of liberty to work with our own barriers in drawing. And I learned that doing something you’re not comfortable with might give interesting results. For me that was using oil pastels this time.
These two pictures were the last ones I made. There were no restrictions for this task, except that we had to use A5 size paper. I guess the style in the right drawing is both typical me and at the same time something new, and it was challenging to use the right colours in the right areas. Fun though!
By the way, there’s an exhibition with all the drawings we made during the course, this Thursday at Galleri Vekta 😉
