    the start of a 4 day one on one class, reference was chosen by my student :)
    Day one - colour theory and texture building, we built the eyes using buffered paints created in the colour theory section, these are some crazy eyes! 7764FA8D-61D5-457A-96F1-873ED590492B.jpeg

    My Students work, and his first portrait! It was so good seeing him become more and more happy the closer he got, his is more close to the reference with the rugged look to it :) 6EF84B59-3CE1-4299-8CAF-50365B70D65A.jpeg

    So did you need all those colors that were mixed up, or are some of them just ones that didn't mix to the right color?

    That’s a valid question! Yes we used them all, from the photo the paints have settled and no longer have the variations created,
    I done this for two reasons, accuracy within the painting and more importantly, ensuring the student can mix colours more confidently by him/herself,

    Well, you've scared me even more for whenever I try color work lol...I just was looking for where the really orange cup was used and figured it was layered with others and couldn't see that distinct color anymore...or I'm blind, my wife would agree to that point

    Makes me wonder about what outcome you’re normally more nervous about - about your own, or that of your student?

    Cool Paul!:thumbsup: I'm glad for you and your student! Why does your work look better?:D Was it your first go one on one?
    I wish my first portrait was that good.

    Making such amount of mixes is great. Student will understand more.
