To see a video overview of this course click hereThis promises to be a class you will love and value. Work within your skill level but explore the many creative techniques you can bring to your portrait painting. Class includes reference photos, textures, bushes, and video  tutorials you will need.  No matter your level of portrait painting experience or your portrait painting style, you will become a stronger and more creative painter.

WW Creative Portrait_001You may create a simple blender painting or a more complex freehand embellished work of art. You will become more proficient with your blending but we will also spend significant time exploring many other techniques to enhance your portrait and background.

This includes an option to practice easy but artistically painted hairstyles. You may want to paint simple sheer attire and using a layer mask add decorative elements to portrait and/or background. Images and textures are included for this process. These techniques may be used on simple blender paintings or cloned paintings. There will also be fun but instructive warm up exercises to get your creative juices flowing.
