Portrait Artist Grade 1

Entry requirements: see Art Syllabus

Description: People often ask about portrait painting and my reply is "you need certain skill sets to enjoy it", and this is true. Now, by working through our Masterwork and Floral paintings you will have enough skills in brush work and colour mixing to tackle portraits and have fun!

The human face is something we see every day. We are really good at telling one face from another.

Why then are they so difficult to draw or paint?

Sketch of an eye by Peter Inglis - Learn this at Inglis Academy.

Two reasons:

  1. Seeing: The left brain keeps jumping in and making it hard to actually see the face.
  2. Rendering: To express a face in paint requires some sophisticated tool sets.

Luckily for you I have developed an interesting and quick path to portrait painting:
