The Loomis method

This week I got introduced to the masterful books of  Andrew Loomis. One in particular caught my attention: Drawing The Head And Hands. New York: Viking Press

He focuses on facial structures and within the first few pages you are shown all the possibilities/ variations of portraits.

The Loomis Method has got me intrigued and I am looking forward to studying his techniques.

Here is my interpretation of the front cover drawn in charcoal and chalk on toned paper.

      Thanks for the kind words. I started with portraits and still love doing them as you’ll see my studies I always fall back on them. I was just looking at your miniatures that you drew and you’ve got a great eye for capturing the softness in the face. Looking forward to following you
