Learn how to draw faces

Learn how to draw faces

Faces are a classic, exciting motif. Like a story, you can draw a figure using lines and shadows. Tiny small changes and shifts change the whole expression That's why I love portrait drawing so much, and I never get tired. Drawing can be both relaxing and edifying for your senses. You become in a completely new way aware of lines and how shapes create shadows and how different you can interpret this with a pencil. Do you also want to learn to draw faces? It's not as difficult as you might think. In my workshop we go through how to place eyes nose and mouth, how to think with neck and ears. You learn simple basic forms for building eyes, nose and mouth, and how to create volume so that it does not feel flat. You will learn to build on with shadows to create your personal expression. You do not need any previous experience.

Lisa är fantastisk duktig och väldigt pedagogisk! Bra information om lämpligt och rekommenderat material samt grundläggande teknik för att lyckas med att teckna ansikten!



Lisa är en fantastisk person och jag lärde mig många värdefulla tekniker som kommer att förbereda mig inför mina antagningsprov. Jag rekommenderarar alla som vill lära sig att rita ett ansikte att gå på Lisas workshop. Stort tack!



Den kändes personlig! Uppskattade Lisas varma bemötande och presentation av kursen. Alla hade plats oavsett erfarenhet av att rita eller inte. Uppskattade allt inspirerande material som fanns framme.



Väldigt konkret! Massor av detaljerade tips om hur man ska tänka i former och skuggor. Hon han med mycket på den korta tiden, perspektiv, grundformer, skuggor. Och tips på hur man rita rett ansikte genom att tänka i former av äggkartonger, kaffefilter, hyllor osv. Låter flummigt men det var väldigt pedagogiskt.
