Portrait Painting from the life model
Short alla prima portraits are a great method to effectively improve your painting skills.
In this painting class you will learn to paint impressive portraits. We work from the model each time - there are both long and short poses. No fixed exercises are given, but you work independently on your portraits. The instructor will constantly support you with your individual questions, problems or give you tasks adapted to your needs.
You can take part in this course either with oil or acrylic paints (e.g. Golden Open). We recommend oil paints as they are more flexible than acrylics. And if you prefer to paint digitally, you are also welcome to take part in this painting course with your tablet.
This painting course is only for intermediate students who want to deepen their portrait skills. For all others, we recommend to take our Portrait Painting Fundamentals first.
