Have you ever struggled to paint a realistic portrait that actually looks like your reference?

It can be so hard to get the proportions right. The eyes, nose, mouth, cheeks…

And even if you get that far, then comes the dreaded colour palette to create the perfect matching skin tone.

Of course, don’t forget about the whole process of adding light and shade!

And what about recreating the hair!?

Katarina Vicenova

In this exclusive course for Anne’s International School of Art, professional fine artist Katarina Vicenova provides easy step-by-step guidance showing you how to paint a portrait from a photo reference.
