"The digital Zoom workshop was, in my opinion, great, even advantageous. We received the same great instruction from Ann Kullberg that I envisioned. I learned so much about creating skin tones and the details of making eyes come to life! It was so totally worth the the time and effort invested."

- Melodie L., Tier 2 Portraits Workshop with Ann

"The workshop transformed my two regular days in two rich and passionate days. Because Ann is passionate and generous so her teaching has such a fresh style that I am thinking to take it again."

- Alessandra T., Tier 1 Online Workshop with Ann

Eyes All Day! with Francesca Comparin

When: December 6 & 8 (8:00 am - 11:00 am Pacific Time) 
Instructor: Francesca Comparin
Cost: $85

About the class: When you’re drawing a portrait, if you don’t have the eyes just right, the whole drawing goes flat, and we don’t want that, do we?! Despite being only a small part of the face, the eyes convey most of our emotions, and every pigment in our irises is beautiful and it is ultimately part of who we are. In this Eyes All Day! workshop, Francesca will show you how to work from light to dark, using underpainting to achieve a realistic look and also how to incorporate fine detail. Learn, practice and gain confidence as Francesca guides you through this thorough, rewarding 6-hour workshop.
