Profile Portrait • The people in the painting are facing the side, that is called a profile. • When someone creates art of a person’s face it is called a portrait. • If we put the two ideas together: profile and portrait - what does it mean?
Starting the Face 1. Draw a large oval. 2. On the middle line write ‘eye’ 3. Label the bottom line ‘mouth’ 4. Label the top line ‘hair’ Hair Line Eye Line Mouth Line
Drawing a Profile Portrait • The eye and mouth are easiest, they go on their lines. • The nose lines up with the eye at the top. • The ear starts at the eye and ends at the nose. • To make the hair line look at other students to see the line where hair and face come together.
