I have been working with Denis and doing figurative and expressive self portraits. this was to help with time management as we where given a set time as well as to help u to be more expressive and adventurous with your work which means you will be able to sketch down ideas quickly with out a second thought. You might think that because we’re so familiar with the shapes of the body and features of the human face, that they would be extra easy to draw. Ironically, they are the most difficult to draw precisely because we are so intimately familiar with them. If your lines are off just a little, the picture will look funny. so it will also help u to be precise and it will help with proportions and scale. I found these workshops to be really helpful and effective.
