portrait from memory
For my drawing in colour course. The assignment was to draw a portrait from memory. I had five minutes to look at my subject and make some preliminary sketches, then the rest of the portrait had to be completed from what I could remember. Accuracy isn't important here, the point being that what you create from memory is where art begins. Not entirely sure about how successful I've been, but here's my attempt, which I really enjoyed. My choice of colours was based on a gut feeling, I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve and tried my best to work towards that.
Coloured pencil & dry pastels on A2 sized sugar paper.
