Beginners Portraiture Course – Week 2

Leave a comment

Hi Everyone

This week we started looking at the individual features of the face.  Mouths seemed like a good place to start and I was blown away by the standard of drawings you all produced.  You did some incredible work!  We started with just using an HB pencil and a few “mouth guidelines” to get started.  Then varying the amount of pressure used to create a range of tones.  Then we used pen and cross hatching technique to create different tones whilst drawing mouths in different positions and from a variety of angles.  Finally we experimented with ink wash by brushing water over certain areas of pen to create a more intense tone.  Next week we’ll be looking at noses and trying out another new technique.

Looking forward to it!  See you soon.
