Drawing and painting studies of the human head form some of the most complex of tasks for any student. Aspects of proportion, form, structure and the finer nuances of tonal pitch and colour all provide

a perpetual challenge.


In this weekend workshop you will be introduced to systems of proportion and measurement, basic structure and form and how to begin by seeing the great masses of the head before cosidering of surface detail. We will look at the identifying features of eyes, nose, mouth and ears and how these relate to the structure of the skull beneath in terms of both placement and proportion.


Drawing in charcoal on the first day will lead us into painting on the second with an introduction to colour mixing and the establishing of

a successful working methodology.


There will be opportunities for exploration around both objective and subjective interpretation, and the encouragement of individual development and personal response.
