2 Days! Beginner to Intermediate Portraiture
Students will work from a live model each day to create a convincing, life-like portrait. The workshop will cover key concepts including construction and planes of the head, simple anatomy, light and shadow, shapes, values and edges, use of charcoal/conté medium.
The first day we will draw each other, so artists need to be willing to model for short periods of time.
