This term we have created “Selfie Portraits.” We used the ipads to take ‘selfies’ and then used these photos to help us draw a self portrait.
We had to make sure we had our eyes, nose, mouths and ears in the right place. We tried very hard to draw in the individual hairs of our eyebrows and put lots of detail into our hair and eyes.

We have also been trying out wax resist. We used Pysanky Egg designs as inspiration for out own designs. Ukrainian Pysanky Eggs are decorated with a wax resist technique. We used candles and watercolour paints to create our own eggs. It was more difficult than we first thought to press hard enough with the wax candle on the paper, but we are very happy with our results.
