Portrait in Classical Oil Painting Technique by Alexei Antonov

artpapa.com . Multiple Layers Painting Step by Step Portrait Exercise. A special teaching system which I have developed specifically to enable the student to learn and remember the main technical principles of the Flemish painting traditions in a very short time. Students will practice paintng on step-by-step template with 6 windows reflecting the stages of classical multilayer technique, from imprimatura to the final brush strokes. In the windows showing the previous stages (layers), students will imitate the exact color and shade mixture of the next layer, following the example of the template, without waiting for the paint to dry.

  7. You are absolutely the best artist that I have ever seen, Including my love of the Old Masters! I pray that one day I can paint as beautifully as you can. Thank you so very much for sharing!

  8. Love it! What varnish did you use by the way? Do you make a transition layer in between the paint layer and varnish layer also? (For future cleanings)
