A NEW PORTRAIT PAINTING ONLINE CLASS OFFERED ON ETSY BY FADEDWEST...

A FEW YEARS AGO I CAME ACROSS THE BEAUTIFUL WORK OF DOLL ARTIST KAREN MILSTEIN.  THE DOLL FACES SHE PAINTS AND ALSO HER FACE PORTRAITS ARE SO ENCHANTING, AND NOW YOU TOO, CAN LEARN HER BEAUTIFUL PORTRAIT STYLE.  IF YOU WANT MORE IN DEPTH TEACHING ABOUT FACIAL FEATURES THOSE TECHNIQUES ARE TAUGHT IN TWO OTHER SEPARATE WORKSHOPS.  IN THE PORTRAIT WORKSHOP, KAREN TEACHES YOU HOW TO USE ONE OF HER DOWNLOADABLE  PORTRAITS USING A TRANSFER TECHNIQUE ON TO A CANVAS. FROM THERE, SHE SHOWS HOW TO PAINT THE PORTRAIT ON A CANVAS.

REMEMBER...THESE WORKSHOPS ARE ONLY ON SALE THROUGH THE DURATION OF MOTHER'S DAY AT 40% OFF.

KAREN ALSO HAS OTHER WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE WHICH ARE IN DEPTH VIDEO WORKSHOPS SPECIFICALLY TEACHING 'NOSE AND LIPS' WORKSHOP, AND 'SKETCHING AND PAINTING THE EYES' WORKSHOP.  I AM TAKING ALL THREE WORKSHOPS TO ENHANCE MY PORTRAIT PAINTING SKILLS.  I AM ALREADY LEARNING NEW TECHNIQUES FROM THE PORTRAIT WORKSHOP, BUT I WANT TO LEARN MORE IN DEPTH TECHNIQUES FOR THE FACIAL FEATURES, SO I AM TAKING THE OTHER WORKSHOPS TOO.

"Polka Dot Sally" is a beautiful Art Portrait and Karen's doll are lovely. I haven't taken a painting lesson in years and if it helps with dolls....well, this sounds good to me. Thanks for sharing.
