Self Portrait, chalk on grey paper
Class: Life Drawing
Task: Create a chalk self-portrait on gray paper. Use chalk to create highlights & shadows. Show foreshortening. Do not draw the drawing paper or chalk.
Solution: Use large bathroom mirror & counter top, sit in the most awkward way so as to draw without touching the paper. Draw a rose in hand as if offering it to the viewer because it's similar in shape to the chalk actually in hand.
