Portrait Artist Workshop

Today I attended a workshop given by artist Daniel Connell.
The workshops held by the City of Wanneroo said “Daniel Connell, an Australian visual artist, uses drawn portraits in public places to generate respectful conversations about who we are as individuals and as a community. His portraits use scale and the direct gaze to create connections between viewers and the subject.”
It was a good experience and I learnt techniques and tips freely given by Daniel.

Daniel explained how the face is divided up into proportions.

Another exercise, we had the choice of using coloured pencil or charcoal in our portraits
