Recent Demo

Here are a few photos from a demo I did for the Federation of Canadian Artists, Victoria Chapter last week.  It was a short 2 hour meeting so around 1:35 minutes of painting time.  When I'm talking and painting the time seems to fly by even faster then normal.

I'm excited to be teaching another portrait drawing class starting February 2nd!

Here is all the info.

Drawing is the foundation of all realist art.  In this 5 week course, 

Noah will show you classical techniques for drawing a realistic portrait. 
Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions.  Working from a live clothed model, you will learn about how to start your drawing,
see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully  observing the properties of light. 
Lots of demos and individual instruction!
