Draw a Valentine Portrait

Start with a print of sunglasses to draw a Valentine portrait. It makes for good face proportion practice.

Before students start drawing, remind them that the face width should be a bit smaller that the glasses. The oval should be drawn in two sections, the top and the bottom. If you draw one large oval ALL around outside the glasses, you will end up with a Charlie Brown head.
