Portraits April 2014

Saturday 26th April 2014 was our last Scholars’ Saturday of the year and we were looking at portraits. The session began with the boys thinking about colour especially of their skin and they looked at their hands on white paper and on the surface of the wooden table and talked about the colours they saw using the two different backgrounds. Powder and block paint was used to create the colours of the hand.

This colour theory led into talking about the structure of a portrait and how paint could be built up in layers and powder paint could be added, almost ‘neat’ to build up the texture of their work.

Portrait painting is not easy and the boys worked with only one very short break to get as much done as possible. They should be very proud of themselves.

Some of the paintings are more finished than others, but we simply just ran out of time.
