About This Class

This class is the second part of 2. After basic principles learnt in the first part of this portrait drawing class like the Third-Technique and other helpful basic guidelines we are now continuing our portrait. (Portrait Drawing PART 1: https://skl.sh/2yk2elI ). We will concentrate on the details of a portrait step by step. After some basics about shading, we will look closely on each part of the face: the nose and the mouth, the eyes and the hair as well as the other characteristic elements of the face. 

Barbara Baumann is an Austrian artist and illustrator. She is teaching drawing classes since 2015 and is enthusiastic about showing the students how they could express themselves by drawing and finding their own style of drawing.

She will show you how to start on a plain sheet of paper. You will learn different methods how to approach by using a minimum of material.
