Venetian Figure Painting


Sample of the last session pose


Following the success of the above video, I have had many requests for further instruction. For now I am offering this step-by-step PDF of a Titian Master Copy (see the Classes tab for more details).



This is a sample of the master copy project that we follow in this course.

You purchase this PDF. It is the step-by-step Master Copy of a Titian used in my UCLA Ex class. With simple instructions it takes you through the three stages of painting: Drawing, Value and Color, it focuses on creating a sense of atmosphere through the order of painting with glazing and scumbling.
