Charcoal People

This week we had a go at drawing full body portraits. We used charcoal so we could make quick bold sketches. We worked standing at the easel which makes it much easier to stay clean. First we experimented to see what marks we could make with charcoal.

Next we took turns to pose. We used an egg timer to time 2 minutes for each sketch. I showed the children how to make quick stick men first, then widen the body and put in details.
