Drawing and Painting Portraits: A Guide for Artists

13 ratings

About This Class:

In this class, you’ll learn how to draw and paint the human portrait! 

You’ll learn how to construct a head, the basic proportions of the face, and how to make quick gesture drawings. We'll talk about the important anatomical landmarks on the face and how to break down each feature into easy to draw forms.

I’ll be using the Procreate App on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil for this. And I’ll be sharing tips all along the way for using that. But really, this class is for anyone who wants to develop their portrait drawing and painting skills, no matter the medium. 

Worksheets are included to help you solidify the information, as well as tons of demonstrations, so you can see the ideas in action!
