If you’ve tried your hand at portrait drawing, you already know it can be difficult to get the results you want. It can seem overwhelming and can leave you wondering where to even begin.
Successful portrait drawing is a skill that is learned, practiced, and honed. With knowledge, practice, and guidance we can learn how to develop portrait drawing skills that lead to more satisfactory results.
In these Beginning level 3-part classes, we will take a closer look at helpful proportional guidelines for establishing realistic portraiture, facial features and characteristics, and creating portrait drawings from photo ((or live model) references using the skills and ideas introduced in each series.
