Every time you look at a portrait, do you think “I wish I could paint something like that"?
When I first started drawing portraits, I too struggled to use traditional academic drawing methods. But then I stumbled upon a simple “Taboo Technique” that easily captures people’s likeness and discovered it’s the dirty secret behind most professional portrait artists. They use this “forbidden” technique but don’t want you to know what it is.
After completing dozens of commissioned portraits that make my clients “ooh and ah” I’ve folded this technique and other short cuts into my “5 P” Portrait Painting Process and taught this process to hundreds of my students so that they could create portraits they could be proud of.
Want to learn what it is?
Tune in for the live masterclass ENCORE: "Discover the “5 P’s” of the Portrait Painting Process to Create Art of Your Loved Ones that You Can Be Proud of…" on Wednesday, September 18th at 3pm ET
In this masterclass you’ll..
☑️ Explore the 5 P's of the Schulman Portrait Painting Process (the third "P" is a total game changer)
☑️ Discover "the Watercolor Advantage" - this allows you to use the special “shortcut” that I teach that makes the whole process much easier
☑️ Uncover the "Taboo Technique" most portrait artists don't want you to know -(this one technique will allow you to get past your doubt)
