Drawing Made Simple

Lesson 1 in Painting Portraits

Lesson Information

This lesson is about breaking down art to its barest essentials. Daniel will go through the Bargue method of drawing, which can train you to make exact recreations of what you see. This can supercharge the skills of any beginner, but even experienced artists will find the technique helps to break bad habits. This first lesson will focus most specifically on eyes and mouths, two of the most important aspects when making any portrait. 

Homework
Eye of the Beholder

Do two or three drawings of eyes, using the Bargue method demonstrated in the lesson. Take your time and focus on simply matching what you see in the reference plate. Upload your progress to the Learn Squared homework gallery. 

Mouthing Off

Do two or three drawings of mouths, using the Bargue method demonstrated in the lesson. Take your time and focus on simply matching what you see in the reference plate. Upload your progress to the Learn Squared homework gallery.
