The Task

Exploring the work of artists, and the materials they use, is a mammoth job, so it might be a good idea to ask a friend to work with you.  You will certainly need a sketchbook to record your findings, so that by the end of this WebQuest you will have notes on a variety of methods that you can use to achieve tone in your portrait.

         

Because you want to look at a wide range of materials that artists use, you will need to widen your search to include people who work with threads, wools, fabrics, plastic and any other material you can think of.  Talk over with your friend how the artist has used the materials to achieve light and dark, is the method effective, would you be keen enough to have a go and experiment.

Happy hunting....
