Drawing the human head has long been a source of fascination and frustration for artists. This one-day workshop focuses on developing strategies for drawing a convincing portrait. Topics covered include anatomy and structure of the head, proportion measurement, drawing individual facial features, as well as how to effectively use a light source to convincingly render the head in space. Students will draw from direct observation to practice incorporating these strategies into their own drawings.
