Portrait Drawing – Continuous Tone and linear Line Technique

January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Portrait Drawing – Continuous Tone and linear Line Technique
This class of 1 day, 2-hour classes. You will learn how to create a portrait. You will be using a photo which you will measure and then calculate your measurements that you will need to place your portrait aspects, eyes, nose, mouth, etc. You will need to bring 2 black and white printed photos size 8.5” x11” of the portrait subject. They should be full frontal and symmetrical and cropped to focus on the face. These printed portraits will be used as reference and allow you to see the light and dark values in your photo/composition. An iPad, Phone camera or digital camera can be used to take these images. One photo will be cut down the middle and the second as a backup. You will practice shading/continuous tone and values, while using several drawing pencils and other tools. This technique will help you create depth in your drawings and to apply the lighting to create light to dark values. You will also be introduced to and practice the use of lines to create textures and movement, which can be used in your final drawing. Practicing between classes is encouraged. Basic drawing is helpful, but not necessary. Some supplies are provided for use in the class but having your own is beneficial for your future usage and for practicing.
