Picasso's Bull Series
Large Fashion Illustrations
Here I had the students first do a sketch from a magazine photo on 8.5'x11" paper. After they had a feel for the drawing they worked in conte crayons and pastels to bring the drawing to an almost life like size. We do a lot of practice drawing to learn proportions. We sketch the figure, either from mannequins, or pose for each other. These large pieces were done at the end of the eight week session, and showcase some of the skills the students learned throughout their class time.
