It is likely that the first thing you ever drew was a portrait. When you first put crayon to paper, you were compelled to recreate the people in your life. Yet as we grow and our visual standards become more discerning, many of us give up creating portraits, feeling that they are too complicated.
In this online workshop, Corey will guide students through his technique of quickly capturing a portrait in pastel by starting with perceived abstract shapes and building on this with a rational approach that includes addressing form, value, color, anatomy, and emotion. Special attention will be given to edgework and color harmonies. The workshop will begin with a demonstration. After the lunch break, students will work from the model with individual assistance provided in Zoom breakout rooms.
A recording of the demonstration will be provided for students to reference.
