What you’ll learn
This lesson will introduce the major structures of the head, and explain how these structures relate to portrait drawing. Starting with the basic forms and planes of the skull, we will then look at the features of the face (eyes, nose, mouth and ears). Finally, we will look at how these large and small forms interlink, and underpin any successful portrait drawing and painting.
How this will help you
If you can think about what is going on beneath the surface when you are drawing a portrait, you will find it a lot easier to make it look more realistic and believable.
