Another Modigliani Portrait

Modigliani 2I can’t tell you how much I adore this Modigliani-style portrait that a 4th grader made today. I find her Mona Lisa smile and hint of blush so sweet that I could look at it all day. Beautiful work, Francesca C. If you’d like directions on this project, see my posting here.
Note: My curriculum plan for this month is doing a series of self-portraits. First week is a portrait with standard proportions (eyes in the middle of the head, nose halfway down, etc). Second week is this Modigliani drawing with exaggerated proportions. Third is a lesson about Picasso and with his cubism portraits, which I have posted about here.

    I love these projects!

    I couldn’t see a contact button so wanted to ask you if crayola pastels would work okay for your murals. We just purchased the blue horse and will hang it in my daughter’s room but Micheal’s did not have the portfolio brand pastels so we ended up getting the crayola – should I look around for the other ones before we start?

    Thanks

    My spouse and i got absolutely peaceful that Raymond could conclude his studies with the precious recommendations he made from your web site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply always be freely giving things that the others have been selling. And we all keep in mind we now have you to appreciate for that. These illustrations you have made, the easy website menu, the relationships you can help promote it’s most sensational, and it’s really facilitating our son in addition to the family consider that the situation is pleasurable, and that is really pressing. Thank you for the whole thing!
