Afternoon Portrait Drawing

from 165.00

This class will make an examination of the portrait.  We will initially discuss staging, lighting the model, and composing on our paper.  We will continue further to discuss facial proportion as we establish an organizational line drawing of our model. We will then define the planer structure of facial anatomy in order to the see the face as a series of successively shrinking planes that reflect varied degrees of light back to the viewer.  This is the ‘architecture’ of our likeness.  At this point, we will take note of what can be called a ‘light system’ and a ‘shadow system’, and determine which of the planes formerly established lies within each system.  Finally, we will discuss the application of relative values to the drawing, and resolve the image into a solid likeness. 16+
