Modigliani Portraits

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!  🙂
