Those of you who like the facebook page (and if you don’t already, please do) might have noticed this image.
For my art class we did two self-portraits, one in pencil and one in ink, where we were supposed to practise hatching and crosshatching.
I got the comment that it looks like I have fur in this picture. Close-up, it sure does, but if you take a couple of steps back it stops looking like fur and looks rather interesting instead.
For my first TBB-post, I thought I’d show of some work in a medium I hardly ever work with: clay. This was an assignment I did for my art class back in upper secondary. While I didn’t fall in love with the exercise, I thought it was a great deal of fun to try out something a bit different.
We had to partner up for the assignment, sit opposite one another and try to make portraits of each other. I partnered with my best friend at the time, but I don’t think it turned out to look much like her at all. Still, there’s something about the expression that reminds me of her…
We were told to make them intentionally rough and not smooth them out. Our teacher encouraged us to keep the places where we added new clay visible.
I can’t see myself doing it very often, but I must say that looking at these pictures make me almost want to buy some clay and get to work. But I don’t think I have the patience for it, really.
