Painting does not exist without drawing. It is the outstanding drawing with its values, which makes the best examples of paintings in the History of Fine Art strong and powerful.
Anyone can copy/modify photos or ready-
made images, whether they are black
and white or in color; but it is the
skill of working from life and particularly
drawing from life, which reveals the
artist's true "Masterability". Even
when you paint you never stop
drawing, only this time you do that
with the brush. Drawing from life is the
must and the fundamental to learn and
to know for anyone, wishing to
become a truly Professional Artist and
Portrait Painter.
That is the philosophy of the traditional
school and such Masters as
Bouguereau, Whistler and Serov.
And this is the main focus of my  workshops with life demos in Oil, Pencil and Pastel, which distinguishes
them from the workshops of others.
In Visual Art, I believe, the more Demos of different medium techniques the students see, the more they learn and understand how to approach those mediums in their own works. It is especially helpful to realize that those very different mediums are actually very much related to each other and have a lot in common - they are the 'clothes' on the beautiful anatomically structured human form underneath.
Having 16 years of formal academic education and 23 years of teaching experience with students around the world, I can assure you that there are no shortcuts in Visual Art's learning. However, my accredited Academic method of teaching will enable you to possess the knowledge you need and to gain the skills you deserve in no time. With the proper academic instruction, just like the Masters you will be able to paint expertly and fast, without wasting your time on fixing mistakes, simply because there won't be any. This will also help you to establish your individual style and to find yourself as an artist sooner than you think. Your education is your investment, invest wisely.
