Miller’s works hang in galleries around Australia and overseas and he has been shortlisted for the Archibald Prize 16 times, winning in 1998. Learn about the art of portraiture in this figure drawing masterclass. Lewis will begin with the fundamentals of the drawing media charcoal and India ink. Through tutorial and demonstration, expect to gain an understanding of perspective, foreshortening and pictorial composition.
