    We are pleased to share with you a 10 week-long class brought to you by Art Mentors! In this class, Master draftsman, Glenn Vilppu teaches Constructive Head Drawing.Glenn’s unique approach to head drawing will guide students through the process of constructing the head. The class will focus on the anatomical structures of the skull and face, and how to draw realistic features and expressions. Glenn will also share his tools and techniques for lighting, shading, and describing the forms of the head. In this third lesson, you will learn more about the planes of the face, and how to employ rendering techniques to describe the underlying structures. Glenn analyzes examples of master works, traces over a skull, and finishes off with a rendered drawing from a live model.

    After Greuze -Portrait of Girl

    Did a Master Copy of the Greuze reference that Glenn shares.  This is on Strathmore paper with Polychromos Burnt Sienna.  I tried to focus more on the proportion than the copy.  I found that I didn’t give her quite the angle or the fullness in the face as Greuze, but I think overall her proportions came out well.  What do you think?
