Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani created unique portraits that had elongated faces and figures. If you have never heard of this artist, I would highly recommend that you google him. His style is very interesting!
When I took Carla Sonheim’s FREE Kid’s Art Week online class, one of our assignments this summer was to create a portrait in Modigliani’s style.
I did not have time to complete the assignment until now. (BTW – This is what is wonderful about online art classes!)
I decided to choose my niece and nephew for my subjects.
Here is my nephew who loves to play tennis! So I had to add a tennis racket to his portrait. 🙂
And here is the reference photo I used. He is 15 years old:
My niece loves her cat:
So I included a photo of her kitty with her portrait.
Here she is at 16 years of age:
I enjoyed creating these Modigliani Portraits with Tombow markers.
Happy Creating! 🙂
