Say good-bye to lifeless, stiff faces in your artwork.

SAY HELLO TO WONKY-TONKY FACES!

When it comes to drawing and painting faces, one of the most common obstacles I notice in my students is NOT a lack of talent or skill, but rather their inability to see the world as trained artists see it.

Being able to perceive the world through relationships, value, form, and contour is the foundational key to creating art that is filled with life, energy, and creative integrity. Thankfully, this skill can be learned!

In Wonky-Tonky Faces Part One you will learn how to see as well as gain the basic elements to drawing and painting faces that are loose, expressive, and dynamic.

In Wonky-Tonky Faces Part Two we'll build on the techniques and theories of Part One, while exploring value, expanding your compositions, and infusing your own unique style and voice into the faces you create.

Wonky-Tonky Faces is not another one of those follow-the-formula rigid approaches to drawing faces. Yes, of course, we're going to look and understand facial proportions -- but then we're going to throw those babies to the wind and strengthen our ability to see and translate what's in front of us (and in our hearts) with more confidence and skill.

My not-so-secret mission in Wonky-Tonky Faces is to have you loving drawing by the time I'm done with you...and I have a strong feeling that faces will just be the beginning of your crazy drawing-love affair.

LET'S get wonky-tonky TOGETHER!
