This unique online course covers a comprehensive procedure for drawing a beautiful portrait. Instructor David Jamieson guides students through developing a portrait from start to finish in a video demonstration that presents nearly every last pencil stroke.

The course is divided into 5 modules: Introduction, Blocking-In, Structuring the Features, Keying the Drawing and Modeling Form. Each unit is sub-divided into specific “lessons” that unfold sequentially as the drawing develops. Key concepts are raised and re-visited as they become relevant during the demo, while David draws and talks through his decisions in real time.
