Portrait Oil Painting

Portrait oil painting course based on the figurative tradition of the great masters.

The course will focus on the process of construction of an oil portrait painting. This process, paired with different methods of observation, gives the student the skills to start understanding proportions, gesture and structure to reach the maximum similarity to the model’s expression and capture the essence of the person portrayed.
