PORTRAIT CLASS 2017
Hello my portrait class of 2017.
A big thanks for attending the portrait class this year. As you know due to illness, we have only covered half the week. Before I see you again in December for the second half, I hope you have a chance to do some drawing.
Anyway, as promised here are some images to help you. They are not mine, but a combination of notes from Andrew Loomis books and also Asaro and Reilly method information I have found on the web. I have also included some very basic notes about eyes and mouth ( I have not written my own proper notes on features of the face.
NOTE: This page will only be available until Wednesday September 27.
Here are some examples of the ASARO head for your reference.
THE REILLY METHOD
If you remember, the Reilly method is all about seeing the rythms of the face. Here I have the ASARO head front view with the Reilly lines marked.
Unfortunately I could only find a small image of an example of the Reilly method for the profile.
HEAD PROPORTIONS - LOOMIS
These are the basic proportions of the head as found in my books by Andrew Loomis
HEAD PROPORTIONS OF CHILDREN - LOOMIS
For those that want more - These are the basic proportions of the children at different ages and gender as found in my books by Andrew Loomis. You may or may not find it useful, but here it is anyway. Since I simply took photos from the book, the images aren't great.
LOOMIS PAGE ON HANDS
As the heading implies, this is simply a page from an Andrew Loomis book on hands
EYES AND MOUTH
These are some very basic notes taken from Painting people in watercolour by Alex Powers. I apologise, but I do not have any written notes of my own on features. Hopefully you took some good notes when I was expalining the features at my painting table.
As a bonus, this is the scone recipe that Nancy used during the week.
