Description

Many people have found that ‘capturing a likeness’ of someone is much harder than they thought.

In this workshop you will learn the underlying proportions and dimensions of the structure of the human face, which are predictable and measurable. These guidelines will provide a solid foundation for creating the likenesses you are looking for. You will have the opportunity to practice using them as David will bring a live model, and will offer individual coaching assistance and advice throughout.

David Chesterton enjoys both watercolour painting and brush and ink illustration, and has been writing stories since childhood. He sold his first watercolour painting at a fair in Ilkeston, England, when he was 9 years old. His first story was published in his school’s magazine when he was 12. David comes by his painting ability naturally as both his parents were watercolourists. He added to their training with studies at the College of Art and Technology at the University of Leicester in England.  David has a collection of portraits of famous actors and actresses from his visit to Hollywood in 1949, and he continues to do portraits of his family, notably grandchildren.

Materials:

David has suggested: a drawing board or stiff support ex: Masonite board and 2 bulldog clips, 3 to 5 sheets of paper 16” x 20”, soft graphite pencils 2B, 4B, and 6B with sharpener, and a kneaded eraser. COPIC Multi Liner Pens in BROWN are an additional option for those who feel adventurous.
