Swimming self portraits.

For a twist on regular self-portraits, we decided to do ours in water. Our students love swimming and we talked about how our bodies move when in the water before using mirrors to observe to observe our faces. Then we sketched ourselves in pencil, coloured in with oil pastels and put a blue food dye wash over the page. To create the water ripples we sprinkled salt over the wet pages.
