Faces are Hard !

When people first start Life Drawing, a common worry is they cannot draw faces. They cannot get the drawing to ‘Look Like’ the model. And my response is ‘don’t draw the face’.
Faces are notoriously difficult, and take a long time to master, and you have an entire body to work on! So when you first begin you can more or less leave them out entirely, and as you improve, start adding features. Just a hint of where the eyes, nose and lips are. The less detail the better.
Veronica was our model last week, it was her first time, and she was excellent !
