Your homework for Friday is to complete your charcoal self portrait. this should be stuck into your Developmental Workbook- please use hairspray to ‘fix’ your drawing before putting it in your DW.

If you have time, write a reflection about the successes and challenges you faced while creating your portrait on the opposite page- if not, this will be carried on homework for next Tuesday.

You are now at a stage where you have to start working on your research project for this unit- please select one portrait from two different portrait artists of your choice listing the title, the name of the artist, the medium used and the size. You must also include a high quality colour print out of both portraits stuck into your developmental workbook.

First Artist portrait

Please describe in detail what is in the picture.

Discuss what the underlying meanings of the picture may be and what is says to you.

Discuss why you think the artist has created this image.

Second Artists portrait

Please describe in detail what is in the picture.

Discuss what the underlying meanings of the picture may be and what is says to you.

Discuss why you think the artist has created this image.

Compare the two pieces discussing visual effects, mediums and techniques and over all message/ impact.

State your preference and why.

You should start working on this now but we will discuss it further tomorrow- I will give you until the end of the week after summative assessment week to complete this. It will be due on 23rd January.
