Understanding And Painting The Head


Perhaps nothing is more essential for an artist to understand than the human head. Drawing and painting the head well presents us with nearly every major drawing challenge: form, proportion, perspective, anatomy, complexity, simplicity, etc.

In Chapter 1, I break down the head, with focus on the most important things you need to understand to draw and paint it well. These will not simply be anatomy lessons. They will be designed with application in mind, to give you the full scope of the art process, from understanding to execution.

In Chapter 2, I explain values, light, and color – and how they play over the head. Several demonstrations of painting the head in full color and light (both digital and traditional.) I will discuss how to go about simplifying and managing all the information presented in Chapter 1, turning it into a beautiful, artful image.

At the end of the class, several study tips are included, which can help you design your own assignments and actionable steps.
