Portraiture in oil

Working up from gestural marks to bold finishing strokes, using color to indicate personality and mood while capturing likeness

Learn to be a more effective and confident oil painter and portrait artist! I will cover basics of oil paint, from materials and methods to a brief discussion of how painting from life will help you paint from photo reference and use color more effectively, as well as give tips and tricks on portraiture and likenesses.

I will walk you through the class project, a 1 hour self-portrait assignment from life, by demonstrating my own process and what goals I try to keep in mind with each painting.

Check out my work at my website and Behance.
