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!

  1. Seeing: The right 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:
