Have you ever wondered how to paint a background that doesn't look out of place or messy, but works well with the person you're painting?
I want you to have a painting you can be proud of, that you can show your family, or maybe begin to paint commissioned art for others that will thrill them! Imagine what it would feel like to give your loved one a portrait painting you did as a gift...and be confident that because you painted it so well, they will cherish that gift for a lifetime!
In the "Paint Your First Amazing Acrylic Portrait" course, you will learn how to:
Something that makes this course different than just about every other online painting course I've seen is that that you will get unlimited personal critiques via email throughout the duration of the class. I will also fit in a few critiques during the live video sessions as much as possible. This way, if you're stuck in a certain area in your painting, you're not just sitting there wondering what to do next. I'll show you the next step to take. Now...
Here's some feedback on Facebook from a local painting student that benefited from personal critique...
"Took a photo realism acrylics class, this is my first attempt at painting. Thank you Matt Philleo at Artisan Forge Studios for teaching me how to do this! — with Matt Philleo."
Matt Philleo Thanks for sharing this, Holly. This is a great painting for anyone to have created, but this is your FIRST acrylic painting, so wow, kudos to you! I hope you continue to create more...
Holly sure enjoyed learning how to paint her first acrylic portrait. I bet she also enjoyed all the wonderful feedback on her painting from her friends. :) And I'm sure this will be just the start of her painting adventures!
I know that you will enjoy increasing your skills and creating an incredible portrait in acrylic too.
One of my students from my email video tutorials said this:
"I watched your recent videos with the highlights and it really helped not to use a paint-by-numbers approach where every color is put in place one piece here and one piece there. I colored the whole face with a skin tone and started to add the light with very thin layers and I liked how it turned out. So that (video) really helped." --Karen Hill
