On this course with Christopher Clements you’ll learn an approach to drawing head studies in an organised way. You’ll be shown how to focus on one thing at a time, each decision informing the next. This will help you build up drawings in layers, adding detail as you become more confident about the big picture.

What you’ll learn will be perfectly suited to making stand alone portrait sketches, studies for studio portraits or developing your life drawing skills.

If you’re new to Northern Realist this course is the best one to start with because it covers the drawing techniques used throughout all the portrait courses. It’s also a great refresher course if you’ve studied with Northern Realist previously.

Christopher will begin the sessions with an explanation and demonstration of the principles to be covered. You’ll then work on your own drawings using reference images sent to you, getting plenty of personal feedback as you progress.

Each week you’ll focus on a different aspect of drawing the head, building on the previous class. In the final week you’ll bring everything together in a finished drawing.

By the end of the course you’ll be familiar with principles required to drawing convincing head studies and will have developed your portrait drawing technique.
