Head studies workshop

A common challenge faced by many is achieving proportional accuracy, often resulting in parts of the face being inadvertently oversized or undersized. Maintaining symmetry and accurately placing and sizing the eyes can also pose difficulties. In our workshop, we dispel these concerns, and even without a live model, we unravel the fundamental principles for constructing the head and face using a straightforward methodology to ensure a strong beginning.
The tools and techniques Javier imparts have empowered numerous artists to enhance their confidence and proficiency, providing them with newfound assurance in their artistic endeavours.
