I began this charcoal self portrait with my Drawing 1 students a few weeks ago. I was teaching them how to begin a self portrait drawing, using the Grid Method. I began working from a photograph and completed the drawing by observation. After all, we are our own 24/7 model! Today I added some more value and contrast, completing the drawing. I thought that I would share how it turned out.
