Year 5 sketched their “manly” men (beards, goatees, moustaches etc!) in lead pencil and then charcoal. We used watercolour paint to add the “pop” by finishing with a single-colour background and another t-shirt colour. The effect is reminiscent of one of Warhol’s Marilyn prints, but obviously a lot more manly : )
I really like these, and they looked pretty rad on the back wall. You can see my previous Manly Men post courtesy of Year 1 here (sans the pop background).
These are Great! Love the combo of charcoal with bright watercolor.ReplyDelete
