In this 2-day, intensive workshop, students will work from the live model, over an extended pose and will discover a clear and straightforward way to approach drawing the portrait tonally, with an emphasis on accurate drawing and observation, particularly the subtlety that the model presents.  

Participants will spend the first day of the workshop drawing the portrait by using a reductive method, toning the paper with charcoal or graphite powder, then achieving value by either rubbing out for the lights, and adding charcoal / graphite for darker values.  The second day of the workshop, students will work on paper (that we will tone together) during the first day, and utilising various dry mediums such as coloured pencils, graphite, and charcoal, work to achieve a finished portrait drawing.  

Students will also learn how to capture the likeness of the model, and simulate the effects of light washing over the forms presented before them.  Through constant demonstrations, and individual critiques, all information covered in this workshop will be thoroughly explained so that each person will meet their individual goals.  All levels are welcome.

There will be a model change each day, allowing participants to have two finished portraits by the workshop’s end.

Demonstrations will be given on the following:

  • Toning paper using ink wash

  • Utilising a graphite or charcoal “wash” to achieve a value structure

  • Drawing techniques: block-In, charcoal tonal drawing, graphite and white chalk on toned paper
