Modigliani Style Portrait

Amedeo Modigliani was a late-century European artist who never lived to see his success, but his paintings are some of my all-time favorites. I love his portraits with elongated faces in soulful colors.
1. Start with a tall 9" x 15" sheet of black paper. Fold the paper in half three times to make 8 equal sections as shown. Draw a head, neck and body as shown on the diagram.
2. Draw hair around the head as needed.
3. Modigliana drew his faces in stretched proportions as the eyes usually sit in the middle of the face. Draw your  eyes near the top of the head, and the mouth near the bottom. Continue with a nose and eyebrows.
4. With a black oil pastel, trace the pencil lines using a lot of pressure to make a thick line. Fill in the skin, hair and clothes with more pastel. If some of the black lines get covered up, trace all again when complete.
