Painting Portraits - Oil Painting Workshop
Welcome to the studio! I can’t wait to share some awesome PORTRAIT PAINTING techniques with you. I wanted to create an online workshop, that showed a wide range of subjects and approaches when it comes to painting realistic portraits.
This workshop contains SIX different subjects; different genders and skin types, showcasing a range of skin tones and styles! In each demonstration in this workshop, I show a different technique for how to create 3-Dimensional portraits that feel ALIVE!
We will talk a bunch about materials and I’ll share with you the brushes I use for specific techniques, as well as the colour combinations to create realistic skin tones. I will also share the photographic reference I’m using, giving you exclusive access to high res images, so you can try your hand at these techniques!
Included in this workshop are two BONUS FEATURES! To give you even more vital information, I’ve included a couple of special presentations; one on drawing the human head, and another extended colour mixing section, focused on the ZORN PALETTE. Ever heard of the Zorn Palette? This is all about using just 4 colours to create a wide range of skin tones, in a variety of different scenarios!
My aim with this workshop is to give you the information you’ll need to apply these techniques to your next portrait painting, to help take your work even further! This is the only portrait painting course you’ll need!
THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL TUTORIAL TO ADD TO YOUR “TISCHLER” COLLECTION!
I’ve dedicated the last 16 years to mastering painting; let me show you some great techniques that will save you the time and effort grinding it out in the studio. Take your PORTRAIT paintings further – check out this workshop!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- In each demonstration I show you my first strokes, constructing the portraits and creating a likeness from the outset. This will help solidify your sitter within the picture plane and define the 3-dimensional volume, ready for the initial colours.
- We then block in our portrait with bold strokes of colour, establishing the major skin tones and a painterly background. From here we slow things down and I show the process of laying in refining strokes of detail, to make the sitter come to life!
- You’ll come away with a new understanding for how to create a realistic looking portrait, that actually looks like your sitter!
- You’ll also learn how to handle oil painting materials with ease, by just adhering to a few tried and true principles. Oil painting needn’t be daunting or over-complicated. Once you have a grasp of the fundamentals, covered in this workshop, you’ll be painting up a storm!
