This is how to think about the face when you're painting it. Frederic Fiebig - Facial planes example I am interested by the geometric shapes and brushstrokes that are simple and abstract by themselves but when together create a recognizable portrait.
get students to draw planes of the face over magazine images yr I need to do this. This'll be so helpful for when it comes to structuring out a face, just so you get used to it. I'd def try it with all sorts of face types, too.
