Students will learn to paint the structural landmarks of the face by combining the variations of form and plane. We will focus on the beginning stage by simplifying light and shadow to create shapes with a step-by-step approach, which will then allow you to build the detail of the face and achieve a likeness with human expression. You will learn to create a three-dimensional effect with depth of space by understanding and controlling your edges. Model will be posing via Zoom each session.
