a charcoal portrait class
In this 2 hour online class we’re going to draw an expressive charcoal portrait of a bearded elderly man, working in beautiful grey tones to create depth and interest.
In the videos you can follow exactly how this portrait was made, layer after layer, from start to finish. I’ll explain all about the materials I used and show you a very easy method to get the right proportions and measurements for your portrait. And last but not least, you will learn how to create those beautiful lines and wrinkles in the face, as well as his fantastic hair and beard!
Originally recorded for Let’s Face It 2022, I am excited to share this class with you now!
