Portrait Drawing Workshop
April 24-26, 2020
Hours: 10:45 -5:00 p.m.
Lunch: 1:30-2:15 p.m.
In this three day workshop artists will learn the fundamentals of portrait drawing. With an emphasis on structure and anatomy, Tyler will help students in understanding likeness through careful observation of proportion, skeletal landmarks, and abstract shape design. Artists will also learn to create a sculptural quality to their portraits through in-depth analysis of the light source and how it interacts with the forms of the face.
There will be one pose for the entire three days. The process begins with the block-in stage, which aims to capture the likeness and character through accurate proportion, shape design and structural anatomy. After the block-in is complete, students will move into modeling form through an understanding of the light source.
Comparative measurement, materials, light and form will also be discussed. Artists of all skill levels are encouraged to join.
