monochormatic portraits using secondary colors.
Next we erased the guide lines we used to draw the face, and then sectioned it off with a variety of lines.
The students had a choice of mixing a secondary color. Using only that color and black and white, the mixed a series of tints and shades.
The final step was to use a water based marker to retrace the lines of the face, hair and dividing lines one more time to make the shapes of color pop. I think the results are great! I can't wait to share our final project with you. We are applying the principle to landscapes using colored pencils.
