Masterclass head drawing
22 & 23 June | 10:00 - 17:00
Learn master artist Glenn Vilppu’s structural approach to head drawingthrough an understanding of construction, anatomy and planes. Gain an understanding of the fundamentals of expression and how to capture it in a quick sketch.
During this workshop Glenn Vilppu will share a constructive approach to develop your ability to draw the head, focusing on understanding the structure and light rather than just copying.
This class will include an analysis of the planes of the head and the way the underlying anatomical structure of the skull affects the surface planes. A discussion of variations in types of heads and individual features (eyes, noses, etc.) and the way they affect the overall individual character of the model. Expression – how to capture it from life as well as the fundamental elements that create a variety of expressions. Rendering techniques including control of tones, cross hatching. Use of water soluble pencils and sketching methods. Artist of all levels are welcome; previous drawing experience not required.
