Taking inspiration from Victorian art and architecture, explore line, tone, texture, colour and composition, through the traditional genres of still life, landscape and portraiture
The earliest photographs were made by Louis Daguerre in 1837, the year Victoria ascended to the throne, and by the 1860s photography was widespread. Inspired by those early, atmospheric images, this activity uses coffee stains to create ‘sepia-toned’ portraits.
