Bored in Class? Sometimes all artists want to do is draw….
Some of the reasons this work makes a great Art Portfolio piece:
- It’s mixed media- this student used charcoal and then collaged torn pieces of paper for the skin tone – then added a bit more color with pastel to the background.
- It’s moody- when you look at this drawing/collage you can feel the boredom, so it becomes relatable.
- The perspective – The perspective on this piece is great- there is a definite foreground- middleground and background here, and we can also see different facial profile perspectives.
- The contrast- the strategic use of heavy blacks leads our eye through the composition.
