The focus will be on a direct approach to painting the male and female portrait from photo with varied lighting scenarios in angle, source and color. We will work on application, brushmanship, indication, manipulation of edge, value and ultimately color to indicate the head in oil.

When purchasing materials, note that you do not need every brush and size, just get a good variety of small, medium and large brushes in bristle (stiff hair) and sables (soft hair).
