online art workshop for teens and adults

Master the effects of glowing skin, soft shadows, silky hair and unforgettable eyes! Learn to use traditional oil painting technique of XVII century, leading your work from the grisaille underpainting to glazes.
This amazing technique can be applied to any genre of realistic painting. I am currently working on paintings of people riding subway:
