Learn to Draw Faces the Bennecelli Way!

Author: Joseph Bennecelli

I have been drawing faces ever since I was a child. Faces are my favorite thing to draw. In fact, when I was in school, I used to draw faces all over my papers when I was actually supposed to be doing my school work! As I said, I love to draw faces! To me, faces are the most interesting and challenging thing to draw.

You can learn how to draw faces too. These pages are actual drawing lessons which will teach you the simple steps on how to draw faces. I'll show you step-by-step all the techniques that I use.

The drawing lessons presented here are actual pages from my personal notebooks. All the drawings are mine; all the words are mine written in my own handwriting. All you have to do is download the pages and print your own copies. Click on a page listed below. When it has downloaded, you can print it out. Click on the "X" in the upper right corner to close that window and return to this page.

Bennecelli on The Portrait: "The portrait is perhaps the most highly honored of all art forms. The art of the portrait painter speaks to all people. Of all the portrait styles, the Classical or Renaissance style is the most popular. That is the style in which I paint."
