In this workshop students will spend the first day drawing from the model to quickly go over the fundamental elements of the drawing, which includes how to simplify the subject into light and shadow shapes, how to create form, how to create depth of space by working with soft and hard edges and most importantly using tools to check your drawing. From 2nd day, the instructor will explain step-by-step approach along with a demonstration, and then the students will work from the model and lay out the paint. This class will provide confidence and the knowledge of how to start a portrait painting. Open to beginner and intermediate.
