Portrait Painting Atelier: Old Master Techniques and Contemporary Applications (hardcover)

by Suzanne Brooker - foreward by Domenic Cretara

Portrait Painting Atelier provides serious artists with a course of instruction that demonstrates in step-by-step detail the old masters' technique of layering paint over a toned-ground surface, a process that builds from the transparent dark areas to the more densely painted lights. In this method, the tone of the ground serves to unify the overall painting as well as optically influencing the thinly applied layers of pigment, creating the effect of a beautiful glow that illuminates the skin tones and achieves a soft blending of colour tones.
