For the second half of the day, students will be establishing the basic drawing for their chosen portrait, guided by David.
Day 2 - Using the techniques demonstrated by David throughout the day, you’ll learn to portray the features and textures of the face accurately. David will speak on the intricacies of using of colour and value to bring your art piece to a successful conclusion.
