Oil Portrait Demo by Lenin Delsol

From Sketch to Finish with Lenin Delsol

Painting a portrait from multiple sittings is crucial for artistic growth. Working this way, you will begin to notice subtle details and build rapport with your sitter—empowering you to paint a genuine likeness that reveals your subject’s inner spirit.

In this class, you can expect to paint three different portraits of a live model sitting in a two-week continued pose. Each session includes demos and a good deal of one-on-one instruction. You will receive online access to the pose images for working outside of class if you so choose.

Special Notes
Class meets in the northlight studio on the 3rd floor of the Palette & Chisel located at 1012 N. Dearborn Street in Chicago, Illinois.

The $50 model fee is required and non-refundable. It must be paid to the instructor at the first class session.
