claOn September 1st I am teaching online via Obby.co.uk a simple portrait drawing class for 1 hour. Right from the start of a blank canvas or your paper, I will take you into an easy way to draw someone's head from scratch. Taking into consideration the head, the face shape and neck, forehead, bridge of nose and facial features and how they relate to each other. For a practice portrait or for a basis for a possible painting, this short course is perfect for the start of a beginner's journey in drawing.
When drawing a portrait head, it is important to get the basic proportions correct, because it is these which help to produce a good likeness. While establishing that it is partly differences in proportion which distinguish one head from another, it is useful to start by getting the basic or normal head proportions firmly fixed in your mind. The task of sketching the human head becomes simpler and easier if we break it down into manageable portions.
Therefore you will need to bring a photograph or reference of someone you are drawing. Or you could do your self-portrait. For more details contact http://www.obby.co.uk/classes or you can book on my website: https://www.jackienorman.com/
