Although portrait painting may seem formidable, this workshop is non-intimidating with both the novice and veteran artist in mind! While you don't need to be highly skilled with the airbrush you do need to have a firm grasp of the basics.
Here is our class project. In this 4-day workshop, Dru Blair will teach you the techniques of painting realistic skin tones, hair, lips, eyes, backgrounds and many other attributes that make up a well-executed realism portrait painting.
Class is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
