"A day of drawing a portrait from a model in charcoal. We will begin the workshop with fun exercises in drawing and experiments with various tools to use with charcoal, such as sandpaper, burnt cork, and Chamois. Instruction will be given on making your own charcoal, guides to drawing the masses of the head, on compostition, volume, and weight of the skull, and tone,
Working with burnt cork, we will make a short compositional study of the head, looking to define the aspect, weight, planes, and finally features of the head. We will then work on a portrait in burnt cork, charcoal, and greys, for the remainder of the day. Please make sure to have three shades of grey chalk pastel - dark , mid grey, light grey as well as white. "
