DRAWING - MEASUREMENTS OF THE FACE

WHEN I DRAW THE FACE, I START WITH ONE EYE, THERE IS EXACTLY ONE EYE
SPACE BETWEEN THE EYES. THE EYES AND NOSE FIT INSIDE A TRIANGLE.
THIS IS THE SAME ON ALL HUMAN BEINGS. LOOK AT A STRAIGHT ON PHOTO AND
LOOK FOR THE TRIANGLE.

I USE PLUMB LINES TO DETERMINE THE PLACEMENT OF THE FLAP OF THE NOSE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE EYES.

THE EYES FALL DEAD CENTER OF THE HEAD FROM THE BONEY CROWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CHIN, THAT IS WITH THE HEAD STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN, NOT
TILTED. IF YOU PUT EVERYTHING WHERE IT GOES AND MEASURE CORRECTLY,
YOU WILL GET A LIKENESS. IF YOU HAVE A FEAR OF PORTRAIT WORK, TRY USING
THESE LITTLE TIPS.

Simple Use of The 3 Primary Colors

Yellow, Red and Blue, all other colors are made from these three. You can substitute
any yellow, any red, or any blue. The exception to that is the red. If you want violets in
your mixing of color, then you will need to always use a cool red, such as Permanent Rose,
Opera, Quinacridone Rose, etc. A orange red such as Vermillion or Cadmium Red Light
will only make brown when mixed with blue.

Grays: All three primaries mixed together will produce some form of gray, also neutral if
mixed correctly. Any two secondaries will produce a gray or any two compliments produce
gray. Try using a 3 color palette, learn to mix analgous families of color such as: yellow,
yellow orange, orange yellow, orange, orange red, red orange , red, red violet, violet red,
just using the 3 primaries.
