Devon shares the story of his artistic journey and inspires you to start your own. In this section, you’ll build your artist’s supply kit and choose the photo you’ll be painting for the rest of the session.
It’s time to start sketching. Devon takes you through charcoal tracing and grid line drawing—two techniques that provide the outline to your portrait. You’ll choose your preferred method depending on your skill level, then you’ll start drawing!
Devon guides you through the fundamental nuances of the color wheel as you practice blending primary, secondary, and complimentary colors. You’ll mix color on your own, and by the end of the section you’ll achieve the skin tone needed for your portrait.
Now that you’ve laid the groundwork for your portrait, it’s time to add realistic eyes, hair, and shadows. Devon guides you through his foundational technique—painting alla prima to create a mosaic-like look to your piece.
As the face of your portrait comes to life, you’ll continue to bring dimension to your painting with realistic facial details. Devon will show you how to add depth while regulating tone.
When it comes to art, it’s all in the details. Devon guides you through painting your subject’s neck, clothing, and the background of the portrait.
