Dd has just started grammar school and has looked forward to the art lessons for ages. She loves drawing and says she wants to go to art college later.
The first project they have been set , is to paint a self portrait. I find this quiet a difficult task for this age group and her 3rd attempt looks 'slightly' like her. Any tips from experienced artists among you?
Thanks alot that was a great tip, I did google but that link is great, dd watched the video and I did a trial version while she watched too and her latest attempt is really very good. Now we go over to painting techniques starting with how to mix colours. Skin isn't an easy colour to mix!
