Experience the joy of drawing children’s portraits with artist Maureen Killaby. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the defining features of children including smooth skin, eyes, lips and hair to create a realistic graphite drawing. Along the way pick up pencil drawing techniques for blending and shading with a range of values.
While Killaby doesn’t finish the entire drawing on camera, she does a great job explaining how to approach each of the model’s features and how they work together as a whole.
Please note: There are some parts of the cover photo that Killaby doesn’t address in her workshop including clothing, neck, background or most of the model’s hair or accessories. Features drawn to completion include forehead and cheek, eyebrow, some hair (but not in-depth), ears, nose, mouth, chin. She also does not do a stand-alone chapter on her materials specifically. She does, however, do a great job explaining exactly what tool (lead softness, blending tool, etc) she’s using while she’s working.
