Portrait Artists in Tamar Class 26 Sep 2018

We were privileged to be visited by Charlotte Massey this morning to give us a master class in portraiture. We have already been learning about how to draw the human face, focussing mainly on line and proportion. Charlotte’s lesson focussed on light and shadow and she demonstrated how a shadow line falls across the face under strong lighting, using her own paintings and charcoals on her website.

 

Under Charlotte’s tuition, we drew Mr Wild’s portrait in charcoal during the course of the morning. Charlotte and Mr Wild were very impressed by the levels of concentration in the class and by the quality of our finished drawings.
