Learning Stage

At the moment I’m not working on new portraits because I want to seriously get better at freehand drawing and drawing from imagination.

So I’m following an online course with great artists like Steve Huston, Danny Galieote and Glenn Vilppu. I already filled up a whole large sketchbook with exercises and I’m learning a lot.
My aim is to sketch portraits completely freehand and also to be able to draw portraits from imagination.
The main purpose is to study the structure of the head and understand its basic anatomy.
After working through the video material I want to draw five minute heads every day.

Although my exercises are not 100% perfect, it all depends on practice and I’m giving myself the time to learn this the way I’m content with. Since I’m very strict with myself this might take longer than I expected.
