  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • Take a look at your previous day’s work – where did you struggle the most with the idea of the portrait? Where did you succeed the most? How do you use the ideas of chiaroscuro to better define the ideas of form (in the face especially)?

Reflection: What was the most challenging way to draw? Why was this most difficult way to go? What is most important about drawing when it comes to observation?
