Do you struggle to know where to start when you draw a portrait?

It can be tricky to get all the features in the correct proportion to one another without understanding the basic structures of the head. This lesson will provide you with an overview of the shapes and planes of the skull and how to identify them in your subject so that your drawings feel more solid and realistic.

What’s included:

  • HD recording of the entire 2.5 hr workshop
  • Portrait + Skull Reference Pack

This session is part of a series of four workshops that will teach you everything you need to know about drawing portraits. You can take this workshop individually or you can sign up for the complete series and receive a 10% discount off the bundle.

Recorded during a live online workshop that took place on Monday the 8th of February 2021.

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.
