Instructional video by Sergey Gusev
How to paint a portait in acrylics?
In this video tutorial Sergey Gusev demostrates how to paint a portrait in acrylics on paper. As the reference the artist uses a painting by John William Godward - a british artist of the 19th century that was originally made in oils.
Though Sergey is not making a master copy he shows how to achieve likeness not only in proportions but also in colors and tonal values.
The idea of this video lesson is to demonstrate that it is possible to make a painting in acrylics that was originally made in oils because Sergey was asked many times how to properly do it in acrylic paints.
The artist shows his palette and gives instructions throughout the painting process.
You will get access to the source picture and the list of art supplies that Sergey was using.
