The course will look at the fundamentals of portrait drawing. It will offer a flexible approach to understanding the face taking into account structural and observational techniques.
We will work from a variety of references: photographic, life and by studying work by the masters of portraiture.
We will cover themes such as:
- Line drawing
- Understanding light and shade
- Using different drawing media
- The anatomy and structure of the face.
- The face from different angles
- Working from life
- Character and emotion
- Understanding the features of the face
