Mood Study Workshop...

What a wonderful experience this has been! From Monday, 16 March to Friday 20 March we had a workshop in Lyttelton, Centurion. We studied the effect of various moods and emotions on the facial muscles and features of the human face. Through the application of our newly acquired knowledge we were able to draw and paint a portrait with various emotions and facial expressions. We were able to make people smile and make them worry. We made them cry and we made them laugh.. This new-found ability opened a whole new world to us. We acquired the skill to fix portraits in the future, to alter facial expressions in order to capture and portray the character that future clients might expect from us to capture accurately. The artists, attending the workshop, completed paintings of outstanding quality. Thank you for a lovely workshop!
