Beginners Portraiture Course – Week 5

Leave a comment

Hi folks

Just the last couple of pieces to add to our jigsaw this week.  We started off with some pencil studies of ears.  Ears tend to be something that gets overlooked a bit in portraits but, after this weeks lesson, we now know that there’s a lot going on in there that deserves to be observed.  You all got to grips with all the weird and wonderful curves and shapes within the ear and it was great practise for your shading skills.  Then we moved on to sketches of different hairstyles and looked at the importance of identifying all those light and dark areas.  You did great work this week even when you realised that ears and hair aren’t quite as easy as they look.  Next week we’ll start to piece everything together.

See you soon.
