They can barely paint a pear but

they want to paint a face!
Two minute demo in class... 6 x 6 inches

The impetus for many a work of art is to depict the human face. We watch ourselves in others and tell our story through the face. The placement and symmetrical design of facial features enthralls both the infant and the elderly. Working with just the elements of painting- strong contrasts in color and intense shadows can illuminate any form and actually makes the rendition easier. (It works for a pear too).
