"Drawing the Portrait Head in Charcoal," Scottsdale Artists School, October 2015

I would love to have you join me in drawing portrait heads in charcoal this fall, a weekly class at Scottsdale Artists School in Scottsdale, Arizona. Working from the live model, we'll work on line, value, measuring, lighting, anatomy (including specifics of the features), planes, edges and all the other qualities that result in drawing a believable head.

The drawing on the bottom is charcoal and Conte pencil; the one on top is vine charcoal and charcoal pencil. Both sketches are short-pose and from life. (This is being taught as a charcoal class but if you want to try some conte, I will let you bring it in.)

The class goes for four weeks, starting on October 6th, Tuesdays from 6:30 - 9:30pm. Meanwhile, I have an oil painting class coming up in January of 2016.
