ODS 25, Facial features
This Open Drawing Session is dedicated to the exploration of the facial features that will be at first discussed and drawn considering their typical proportions and correct positioning on the face and head, then with a number of quick sketches from various angles and foreshortenings, exploring a few of the infinite creative possibilities that the facial features and facial expressions can offer to artists.
