Students began by creating an A3 collage background using articles from current newspapers. This was then covered with a white acrylic wash mixed with a small amount of tea. They then drew a famous person of their choice onto the background.
A light colour wash was applied to areas on the background around the face using block paint.
They designed stencils with a connection to their chosen famous person, and cut them out of card. They dry-brushed these onto sections of the background.
Black pen was applied using a range of thick and thin lines to emphasise different areas of the face. Black shadows were added around the head using a dry brush technique.
