Overview

Whether you're an aspiring artist or new to the medium, lecturer and accomplished artist Russell MacEwan makes drawing portraits in charcoal not only accessible but also a real pleasure. You will learn to effectively compose portraits to avoid common mistakes whilst working with a live model.

You will create a portfolio of work guided by Russell who will place you firmly on the path to producing quality charcoal portraits. His easy-to-follow tips, in-depth tutorials, and valuable exercises make this class your first step toward building an understanding and appreciation for every face you draw. This fun class will equip you with the skills to capture them in beautiful charcoal fashion.
