Art Tutorial: Portrait in Oils of Daniel

This is a second paining for my friend Daniel, after the first one I painted in 2015.

Painting a portrait from a challenging webcam reference photo with extremely difficult lighting. This tutorial show the main stages of the painting from start to finish.

As we go along, I will show you the colours I’m using, how I’m mixing them on the pallette, and offer a few painting tips, which, if you’re just starting to paint portraits yourself, I hope you find helpful.
