Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal  | Isabella Allis

About this workshop

Charcoals allow you to create impactful portraits with its dynamic range of deep blacks, brilliant whites and all the shades of grey in between. Join our workshop where a different photo reference will be supplied allowing you to focus on the sequential steps of creating a powerful charcoal drawing.

What will I learn?

You will learn how to block in areas of value, capturing areas of general form, then gradually refine specific features of your subject, ending up with an expressive work with a strong likeness.

We will do exercises to help understand the underlying drawing, and the effects that light and shade have on 3-dimensional form.
