1. Portrait Project With
After studying the drawing fundamentals as well as the anatomy of the head and neck we are ready to start our first portrait project. Using traditional media such as sanguine, chalk, and stretched paper we will start our first portrait of a man’s head from the 3/4 front view.
In this famous assignment from the Repin Academy you will be drawing a portrait from life (or from provided reference) at a large scale over stretched paper. You will be introducing the hands and the upper body into your work, requiring more planning and development of the composition in this challenging project.
