Ben Fenske Portrait Concepts August 2017

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio

 

Just wrapped up another class with visiting artist Ben Fenske; a new, slightly different version of the portrait construction class he taught back in 2015 (click here to read about that course).

 

Like Ben’s other courses, this was a mountain of information to get through in just a few days.  After lecturing extensively each day, Ben would demonstrate, and we had a variety of information for the students to draw and paint from.

 

 

Below, a few of Ben’s demonstration boards from the class:

 

 

 

On the last day, Ben gave a quick demo showing how he approaches using these construction concepts in paint.

 

 

 

Here are a few images of the students at work during the class:

 

Many thanks to our group of students, many of whom traveled to get here.  Until next time.
