This lecture on facial anatomy is designed to teach artists the basic foundations necessary to depict the human face accurately.

He will also cover how these can be varied and combined to create a portrait of any age, build, or gender, as well as the three key elements which are need to capture a likeness. All for only £20... and perfect if you are already attending the 'Portrait Drawing Masterclass with Lucy Fyffe' the following week!
