Constructive Head Drawing

We’re happy to share with you a previously recorded class from Art Mentors. In this class, Master draftsman Glenn Vilppu teaches constructive head drawing. In this 9th session, he focuses on showing reflected and direct light on his drawings of the model. Glenn starts with some 5-minute warmups and moves onto longer demos using various mediums– from colored pencil, to gouache, to iPad. Enjoy!
