For this assignment we had to bring in a piece of cardboard to class and paint a portrait of one of our classmates. We had to use cardboard as it forces you to paint really thick and it also starts you off with a mid-tone, forcing you to create a full value scale in the painting. I was lucky enough to paint my friend, Danni, who is lovely.
Here’s a photo of Danni:
