How to Draw a Cubism Portrait

How+to+Cubism diagram
One way to make a Picasso style cubism portrait is to draw a face with half front view and half side view. My diagram shown may be downloaded HERE.

1. Draw the face on black construction paper.
2. Trace all the lines with a black pastel.
3. Fill in all areas with oil pastels.
