Project Description

Mini-Project: 

- Create some mini-faces and practice your wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry techniques! 

- Color thumbnails. Let loose and experiment with a variety of color schemes before jumping into your final piece. 

Class Project: 

- Select a reference photo (this can be from life or a photo that you've found online or taken yourself). Once you've decided on a subject and a lighting angle, it's time to paint your portrait!
