For this drawing I used paper stretched on the board size 40 x 50. I toned the paper with black tempera and ocher to make an interesting texture. Then I took a gray sauce and outlined the composition of the future portrait free and easy. Then gently painted shadows. A rather difficult task in drawing a portrait is the image of emotions, facial expressions. For this we should know the anatomy and function of the muscles. Drawing facial expressions is much more complicated than a person without emotions. During the master class, you can see how often I had to clarify the expression. After I outlined the shadow I began to draw the facial features using black, gray and white sauce. Most of all in this drawing I wanted to create an expressive image of an alive person.
