The foundation of a painted portrait is a solid understanding of rendering a likeness through drawing. In this one-day workshop, students work from a live model as we explore the major forms of the head and the individual features of the face. The goal of the workshop is for each student to gain stronger control of form and value as we complete a realistic portrait sketch in one session. We will be creating heightened drawings using hard and soft pencils and white chalk on toned paper.
