October 6

Drawing & Painting the HEAD
  • Sargent Quote on the head: If you work on a head for a week without indicating the features you will have learnt something about the modeling of the head.
  • Practice with APPLES  The spherical shape is EVERYWHERE…Don’t get distracted by 20,000 details before you get the solid sphere with it’s values in place. 
  • Use the BOX: imagine or sketch a box over the head to see the 3 sides of any object.
  • PLANES:  Practice sketching the planes on a magazine face. Try to carve out as many as you can to see every turn of the surface.
  • 3 Color Zones on the face: Ochre, Warm, Cool.  No formula but train yourself to look for these areas. See video clip below.
