My first foray into YouTube land, this is a excerpt from a lecture on drawing the head and features where I took on the challenge of a five-minute “gesture” drawing of the head of the model and talked through my thought process as I went along. Enjoy! Thanks to Corvova Lee for filming the lecture!
SYREN Posters are in! If you didn’t pick yours up at the recent show then you can order one! $30 donation to Syren at syrendance.org will get you a poster shipped to your house! Come get ’em while supplies last! Image size 10″ x 13.25″ with a 1″ paper border all around. Fits nicely into a 16″ x 20″ frame if you matte it.
I invite you to learn how to draw with me at one of my classes at the National Academy or in my new private classes in my studio in New Haven, CT.
Enjoy personal attention and specific guidance on how to overcome common drawing and painting challenges. The classes focus on sharpening your observational skills, drawing subjects in proportion, understanding light and shadow, and composition. Expand your creative potential by gaining the skills required to express yourself through graphic media- and have fun doing it!
