Follow four easy to understand steps and learn how to create a breathtaking portrait using just a pencil. You can draw from reference, which can be provided by the trainer, or bring your own photo showing the head of a family member or friend. Please make sure that the image is clear, front on and photo copied to A4 size. Enjoy class discussion of other pencil portraits and become inspired to draw more.
