Hi guys,

My last post showed how I paint a portrait from one spot INSIDE the face and then gradually spread out to complete the whole piece little by little.

You can compare both techniques and see which one suits you best.

Hi guys, I am back here again, this time with a process of how I sketch a portrait using the angles and block-ins. In this method I start from sketching the overall angles from one spot and continue to flow through the sketch, bringing each phase to completion as I go along. I also have a date and venue set for my Sketching the Human Face Workshop on Saturday, 14th of July, 2018 in London, make it a date. I’ll talk about that at the end of this post.

Hi guys, It’s nice to be back here again! This is Hotshot 25! This shows my process of drawing a portrait. It is quite hard to document every stage and sometimes my process does change a bit, but this is the most common method I normally use to approach a drawing from the beginning to the end.
