A33 Portrait Painting in Oil

There are many criteria that go into creating a successful portrait. While capturing a good likeness is very important, it isn’t everything. A great portrait feels alive, evokes emotion, and captures the viewer through the beauty of its maker’s compositional and aesthetic choices. We’ll discuss creating a concept, formulating good composition, and the designing of marks, strokes, color, and light. Break down the formal process of painting a portrait into its most basic parts: drawing, value, and color.
