Oil Painting Portraits
Can I Really Learn to Paint Portraits?
Learning to paint portraits is a common interest, but also often a feared subject. However, like any subject in oil painting, the foundations are the key. Drawing is particularly important, as a good degree of competence in this is required to achieve a portrait that has a likeness.
Painting portraits does tend to be a little more complicated due to the intricate structure of facial features and the level of technique required. It therefore may take a little more patience to learn to paint portraits, but it can be learned with sufficient practice and taken one step at a time.
During the portrait painting lessons you can learn to achieve a likeness, paint facial details and gain certainty and experience in tackling this very rewarding subject.
To What Level Can I Take My Portrait Painting Technique?
Portraiture can be covered during lessons on any of the methods of oil painting, including layered oil painting in which technique can be taken to a high level so as to achieve intense realism in portraits.
