Mastering Portrait Drawing 1: the frontal pose Instant Video Download Recommended for Beginners and those with some drawing experience
Drawing portraits is generally something that most people assume one must be born with a talent for. Sure there are those for whom portait drawing is a God-given talent, but everyone no matter what their 'talent' level must study and acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to grow and develop as an artist.
Being able to consistently get a remarkable likeness in your face and portrait drawing can be learned. But there is a skill-set that must be acquired. The first is the ability to strike the arabesque, that is the entire outside shape of the head. The arabesque encompasses the overall shape and proportion. From there, one constructs the portrait by fixing the facial proportions and then blocking in the initial tone.
Once you attain the skill-set of portrait drawing you will find it to be immensely satisfying and your growth as an artist will accelerate. Seeing the likeness of your loved one or client or model emerging from the paper under your hand is a real accomplishment. Much better than to forever be struggling with the basics of portrait drawing with little or no progress.

Mastering Portrait Drawing 3: Advanced Techniques & Considerations is the third and final workshop of the Mastering Portrait Drawing series. Herein are several challenges: Foremost is the casual gesture that is underpinned by a convex, 3-dimensional facial angle and the immediacy of an inquisitive gaze through a pair of glasses.
The eyes and the glasses should be rendered simultaneously to effect a natural feeling in your portraits. An example to consider is the refraction of light passing through the lenses affecting the forms of the eyes.
Glasses that are simply drawn over the eyes will always appear clumsy and unconvincing. But that is only one aspect to these glasses. This is a forward leaning gesture that presents a 3-dimensional pose that significantly affects the facial angle. The entire head and each feature needs to correspond to the overall receding perspective. Envision a cube in space that is tilted forward.
Many artists have trouble with drawing a convincing relaxed and candid smile. Knowing which form and shape corresponds to which muscle grouping helps immensely but you also need to know where to place the emphasis of line and tone. Otherwise a cheerful smile can quickly deteriorate into a sarcastic smirk.
In this three and one-half hours workshop I comprehensively discuss and demonstrate the entire step-by-step process of drawing the portrait in sanguine conte from its initial beginning to completion.

The Practice of Tone for Portrait Artists Instant Download Workshop Intermediate/Advanced (4 hours)
The Practice of Tone for Portrait Artists is a four-hour workshop that demonstrates the entire process of rendering form. Working within the facial arena I begin by quickly sketching in the features, followed by blocking-in the primary light/dark pattern before embarking on the long process of applying sanguine conte, stumping it in and then delicately lifting it with painterly strokes of a kneaded eraser.
