In week ten, instructor Miles Yoshida will demonstrate how to draw a self-portrait from life on toned paper using ink. You will learn how to tone your paper using a combination of watercolor and ink. Miles will show you how to block in the portrait with a very light diluted ink, starting from the eyes. You will watch him slowly move to the darker values of ink as he further develops his drawing.
