SUMMARY

Join Amanda Webster to learn how to draw the structure of a face by measuring the distances between the features to ensure a likeness. Learn how to apply coloured wet on wet washes to bring the face alive, then detail the beard and hair with lifting out technique. Finish up with an optional use of salt for texture on the beard. All in 60min!
