Portrait Artists, Sharpen Your Drawing Skills!
Cast drawing has been a time-honored approach that highlights the essential ideas of light, form, and overall drawing fundamentals. It is a wonderful way to work on one's ability to see and record shapes and sharpen one's eye, which are essential specially for the portrait artist. By using charcoal pencils and white chalk on a toned surface, students will get familiarized with the use of a toned surface to maximize the amount of depth along with the benefits of learning to tackle drawing issues by working from a stationary white object. Clear thorough steps will reinforce these key components as well as by demonstrations and one on one critiques.
