Thanks Nolan, I learnt a lot. Many portrait classes spend a lot of time talking about how to get the face looking like the model\’s, and very little time on how to actually paint it! Because of the way you did this class, you show us how to paint it – how to use the colours and tonal values to make the shapes.
