My new trimester class is currently studying Chuck Close. He is an incredible artist famous for his huge realist and grid portraits. If you want to know more about him please look at this link: http://youtu.be/GxR3ELuZjLw
The students are learning about colour and the importance of pose in portraiture. A good understanding of complimentary, contrasting, tints, tones, primary, secondary and harmonious colour schemes have been demonstrated now they have tough decisions to make regarding the colour and mood of their final piece. These photos are showing the students figuring out their pieces before they create their final.
