Proportion and Portraiture

October 27, 2017 • After School Workshop

Your eyes go in the middle of your face, your face is five eyes across, your nose is halfway between your eyes and chin, and your mouth is halfway between your nose and chin. Oh, and your ears go up to the ends of your tear ducts and down to the bottom of your nose. Yes, this week we drew proportions.

Full disclosure, drawing faces from life is frustrating. It takes practice to capture the subtleties of people’s features. Our top tip is to lay out the proportions lightly, and then fill in the details by looking at your model.

As an added bonus this week, we’ve been preparing for our Grand Re-Opening Party. There’s a great display of the art everyone has been working on!
