Many of those who visit 1art and who purchased my first video workshop have been asking me how my work on the video workshop on the portrait was going on. Much time has passed and some of you may have gotten tired of waiting. But promises must be kept, and today, I am happy to inform you that my new painting techniques video workshop, Portrait of Anna, has been released. The workshop explains and demonstrates the Flemish technique in the process of painting a portrait of a beautiful young woman. I believe that the quality of the color layer and the likeness to the model in this portrait are exceptional (working in front of the camera, perhaps, makes one concentrate better).
This video course gives you an opportunity to understand and practice the Old Masters' painting technique.

He will lead you through the actual painting of Claret Grapes from start to finish, giving the detailed explanation of all the stages of the Flemish painting style, beginning with drawing, imprimatura, and the umbra layer. Special attention will be given to color layers where the texture is born. Detailed step by step instructions will help you create a piece of art so realistic that people will be drawn to smell and touch it.
