Access to portrait drawing videos that show my process of blocking-in a drawing. This involves establishing the shadow and light, organizing the halftones, and working up the underlying structure and planes of the head.
Access to rewards from Entry Level tier.
Access to portrait drawing videos that show my process of finishing a drawing. This involves refining the shadow shapes and light shape, resolving the planes of the individual features (eyes, nose, mouth), and softening edges and working with the big impression.
Access to rewards from Entry and Advanced Level Tiers.
Each month patrons at the Student Level will email me one drawing that they have been working on. After I have reviewed the image you will receive one in-depth critique / feedback session. Critique will be made via a digital painting application called Procreate and will include:
- 1 recording of me drawing digitally on your drawing/painting (about 25 minutes). I will make changes and talk about the why and how of improving your work.
This PATREON page is a platform that allows the people who want to learn about my techniques gain access to my work directly.
You should become a patron if...
- You want to build drawing & painting skills through atelier level instruction.
- You want to work along with the tutorials on this page and take part in the interactive community section.
- You want to see the stages that my portraits go through and learn about how to do it yourself.
Once per month.
For an overview of how Patreon works in general, they’ve got a great primer HERE to explain how it works.
A little bit of biographical info on me:
I am a classically trained artist and for the last 12 years I have been an instructor in the drawing and painting program of the The Florence Academy of Art. In addition to that I was the director of the Anatomy & Ecorche Department for 5 years, first in Sweden and then in the USA. In 2020 I left the academy to focus my efforts on my art career & online courses.
