Drawing Portraits and the Skull with Rick Myers
Saturday, October 26, 2019
This is a two day class. The first day you will build understanding of the skull and anatomy of the head. Just like sculpture, it is important to have an armature to build from. In Drawing, this armature is the knowledge of the skull and anatomy of muscle and fat that overlays the bone on the human head. During the first day we will also study proportions of the human head and a method of drawing the head from multiple directions. This can be useful if you want to more accurately portray people in your work. The second day we will focus on rendering the human head and creating a portrait of someone you know or yourself. We will talk about value and texture in drawing. We will also cover a little about what makes a good portrait. We will have plenty of time on the second day to get a very good start on a portrait, you may have to do the finishing touches on your own.
