Beginner's Chiaroscuro Portraiture
Learn how to create evocative portraits full of depth and mystique in this beginner’s class where we’ll be learning the basics of both portraiture and chiaroscuro, and then blending the two to create gorgeous finished works. We’ll start the class by going over basics of portraiture including
—Facial Proportions and Mapping
—Drafting a Portrait
And chiaroscuro, including
—What is Chiaroscuro
—Using Positive and Negative Space
We’ll then move on to creating a finished portrait combining the techniques learned in class.
In this class, we'll be using pencil to create shading--however, feel free to bring charcoal if you like. We recommend bringing at least one High B pencil (so 3B-8B)
Ann will be using plenty of on-screen demonstrations to show you exactly how to create chiaroscuro portraits, and for your final work, will be including helpful markups to show you the precise steps you’ll take to create a satisfying finished work.
