Painting a Portrait in Oil Paint

Learn about painting a portrait in oil paint.  In this two-part lesson, Nicole paints the first and second pass on a portrait.  Fully narrated, she explains considerations for the first and second pass, the valuable role of pre-mixing colour, her approach for deciding how much detail to include, and more.

The portrait is part of a large 84″x87″ diptych painted at the Pouch Cove Foundation in Newfoundland.  The lesson includes both videos: a 35 minute first pass demonstration, and a 19 minute second pass demonstration.
