Blog / 2019 / Working from Photos to Paint Portraits

July 8, 2019

This article explains how to paint people from photos you didn’t take yourself and this one reveals in full detail how I feel about hyperrealistic paintings. I talk more about the idea of evoking instead of representing in this video.

If you love what you see, you can hire me to paint your portrait!
