How To Approach Drawing a Portrait

Mark Pearson

How does the novice or experienced artist tackle the portrait? Mark will initially show by example how this can be achieved stage by stage. Then the participants will join a small group and working in either charcoal or pencil they will produce their own drawing. Mark will guide the process, teaching the size relationship of the features and the way the light falls on the face to obtain a resemblance of the subject.
