For Calendar art this term we have been doing self portraits. We had to think about what represents us and draw the ideas down. That was the first stage. Then we practiced using paint and pastel for our backgrounds that was the second stage. After that we got some card and drew a self portrait of ourselves on it. The last thing we did was the background. We used paint pastel and dye to make the background look effective. Here is a slide showing some effects we used and the finished piece.
