Portrait/self-portrait, self exploration

Détail du cours

Sharpen your eye, learn the vocabulary of gesture and portraiture, experiment with different techniques, to learn about drawing and painting. The exploration of oneself resides in the subject drawn but also in the person who draws.

Learning to draw is also learning to observe one's drawing, to trace and perceive one's line, to write is thus reading through what one wishes to express. The line drawn is always true as long as it is only an expression. The difference in meaning that exists between writing and rewriting exists in the same way between the drawing and its correction. There is neither accuracy nor possible failure.

It will thus be a question of first apprehending our tools: to know the lead of its pencil, its paper, its means of expression and to experiment them. Then to analyze the relations between the perceived reality and the expression projected on the paper. To save our means by the geometrical simplification of the face (angle, light and proportions).

Finally, to learn about the nature of lines and traces as expressive means of retranscribing the characters of a face. The drawing of the portrait seen as the dynamic idea of "carrying the line" on a sheet.
