Drawing the Human Head
Fast foundations for structuring your portraits
If you have ever wanted to create contemporary and expressive portraits but always end up in a mess, this course is for you!
For me, drawing skills are essential in the creation of any representational artwork. Because my painting relies heavily on foundational drawing ideas I have developed this course as a prerequisite for my upcoming the "Painting Heads" workshop.
Suitable for beginners and advanced students alike we will break down complex forms into easy manageable concepts.
You will be shown step by step how to structure your image, develop a likeness and use light and shadow to bring life to your portraits.
While I primarily use drawing as a basis for my paintings, you will learn how to complete a finished drawing in charcoal or pencil.
You will have the opportunity to complete weekly assignments and receive personalised feedback through a private website.
As a special bonus, local students in Northern NSW and Gold Coast will have an opportunity to attend a one day drawing from life workshop where you will be guided to apply the techniques you have learned, working from a live model.
