Tutor: Doug Eyre
Start by learning to draw faces with humour and style, building on your own ability at whatever level. Move from portrait to caricature, from faces to features, from parts of the body to hints of a shape. This is an exciting new level for any artist, an entry into a world of humour and incisive perception. Where do you start? How far can a caricature go without being unkind? What are the many secrets in a face? Let Doug take you along a fascinating and rewarding journey. He will help and encourage you every step of the way, passing on simple techniques acquired through years of experience. You will never look at people in the same way again!
