Portrait Painting Summer Class at NYAA

Portrait Study, Oil on Canvas, 16x20
This summer I'm taking a portrait painting class on Saturdays. The instructor is Robert Armetta. He's teaching the methods of the old masters: lots of layers of glazes that are painted on the canvas over time to get a glowing effect. Here's my recent painting from class. This was a 9 hour session. Next week we have a new model. I'm looking forward to starting a new piece.
