The expression of the human face is amazing as well as challenging. It hides beautiful mysteries that you just start to realize while you are already working on a portrait project. A subtle change in the position of the eye or in the darkness of the chic can really transform the face as a whole. How to get there with the physiognomy as well as with the soul of the person you would like to portrait?
This workshop helps in developing the skills to make a professional Portrait from the scratch. We start working on the abstract proportions of the face-head as a volume, then we continue examining in detail each part of the face, later we learn how to work on a portrait from pictures, and finally, we work on our self-portrait.
