Drawing Facial Features with Mandy Boursicot

April 29, 2022


When: April 29th from 11:00 am – 12:30 (PST)

Drawing Facial Features

Mandy Boursicot will demonstrate and explain the construct of each of the facial features in turn.  Understanding what we see is the first step for every portrait artist.  Starting with the construct of each form, Mandy will show how to interpret what we observe, and how to develop a diagrammatic construct into a convincing and pleasing realistic representation of the face.  

Mandy’s demos are always popular, with live demos of the past being regularly sold out.

Be sure to register early and have your questions answered by this Master Artist.
