A one day intensive workshop at the Santa Cruz Art League Saturday, January 19th from 10am-4pm
Faces are endlessly fascinating. And given a few basics, it’s surprisingly easy to draw them. In this intensive workshop, we will discover the underlying anatomy that we all share as humans.
Then we’ll explore the subtle nuances that make each of us so unique.
Drawing on the “canons of the face”, Betty Edward’s, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”, and my own 30 year experience as a portrait painter, we will weave together several very different approaches to drawing and painting the wonderful human face in monochrome.
I can’t guarantee that you will be a brilliant portrait painter by the end of the workshop, but you WILL have a clear understanding of human facial proportions, you’ll have drawn a convincing portrait of a person of your choice, and you’ll have learned a few secrets and tricks of the trade, and have taken the first steps on a path that may become a lifelong obsession.
