One Drawing Daily
If you want to improve your portraiture get The Artists Complete Guide to Drawing the Head by William L Maughan – Watson Guptill Pubs. It is a great book.
Thanks, i’ll make a note of it!
Here’s an exercise for you (something that helps me immensely when drawing a portrait)- try not to draw line. Just put down where the shadows are. Of course, you will use some line but shade alone can indicate with more realism than line. This is very true around the mouth. Sometimes I find myself fussing so much over a mouth when all I had to do was “give an idea” of a mouth by shadow. Does that make sense? You do no have to draw out every single thing, the viewers brain will do a lot with a little. Just with a suggestion.
Now take all I just said and apply it to the psychology of the drawing. Have fun 🙂 Isn’t art wonderful!! Hahaha
I’ll try that!
