What to Expect:
In order to be able to work quickly once we add the ink, we will first study each part of the face, slowly, one after the other: the eyes, the nose, the mouth. We will discover how light and shadow build the volume of a face. The addition of ink comes last because it accentuates the individuality of the painted face: a gaze, a smile… Everything comes to life at once thanks to the power of the ink. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to paint your loved ones with ease, because it is above all about learning to observe the features of the face.
Why ink ?
It is necessary to be both precise and spontaneous, but the pleasure of the ink lies in the result which is always captivating because of the density of the pigment
