Hi everyone,

I’m excited to announce the release of my brand new video on painting the portrait!

This video is unlike any painting video you've seen from me! Filmed in HD with multiple camera angles, you'll see every stroke I make from laying down a wash to finish touches. I'll help you understand how to take a complex subject, such as a portrait, and break it down into simple forms to create a convincing, life-like painting. I take you through my painting process explaining the decisions I'm making with text, illustrations, and voice over to clarify ideas and concepts. I'm really excited about this video and hope it will help make painting the portrait from life much easier!

I've worked hard to make this high quality video jam packed full of excellent content affordable to all. I'm happy to offer the digital copy (1080p HD, 3 hours and 12 minutes) for only $34.95 and the DVD (HD, 2 hours and 45 minutes) for $69.99. Digital copy included with DVD purchase.

Happy painting,
