By Alain Picard

Format: Download

SKU# U7223

Get ready to paint beautiful, luminous pastel portraits with Alain Picard’s painterly approach. In this pastel painting workshop, you’ll learn how to paint the portrait of a young girl using a loose approach inspired by master portraitists such as Sorolla. You’ll learn how to work from a photographic reference to create the composition and use layers of color to build up the face and background, starting with simplified shapes. You’ll learn how to match the colors of the skin, both the true colors and highlight and shadows created by the lighting of the setting, and how to convey curly hair without drawing each strand individually. Finally, you’ll learn how to build up the features of eyes, nose and mouth and add in final details to give the portrait that sense of life.

Excellent! Review by Martha

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of Mr. Picard's dvd. I learned a lot. I wish I could fly up to take one of his workshops live. Maybe in the future. He is a really good teacher. Very precise, easy to understand and amiable. I purchased all of his dvd instructions and I highly recommend them all. I learned a significant amount !

Great information and easy to understand Review by Andrew

It goes through all the stages of making a painterly style portrait, from making thumbnail values sketches to the whole painting.

It is more than just a "Watch me paint " video all the ideas and concepts behind everything that is being done is explained to give you the tools to go and make your own paintings from scratch.

Highly recommended!
