Here we were given the task of creating portraits of ourselves and others using a viewfinder and other techniques such as continuous line drawing, willow charcoal drawing, layered drawing etc. I don’t feel my work resembles either Egon’s or Leonardo Da Vinci’s work as i chose to create a simple minimalistic self-portrait, however, i would like to add Egon’s expressive style into my art in the future.

^ Here we layered up our drawings using a different color for each person’s portrait. were drawing on top of the prevous drawing
^ In this picture we were given a set amount of time to draw individual portrait drawings. I decided to use the continuous line drawing method as I felt confident with is.
^ my inspiration for this drawing was Leonardo da Vinci. Our aim for this task was to create very fine and realistic illustrations. I feel my drawings are not similar to his work as the markings are very thick from the graphite and i haven’t achieved a lot of details. However, the idea of realism is the same because of how i have tried to carry out a true interpretation of my side profile.
^ I feel this drawing resembles qualities such as the disfigured faces of Pablo Picasso’s many portraits.
