Portraits can seem like the toughest type of painting to do well.

A single brushstroke can cause a subject to look ‘wrong’ suddenly. Now you can improve your abilities to paint realistic eyes, noses, and lips, which will in turn help you to create wonderful portraits. The instructor will explain the anatomy of these features, make you aware of necessary details, and show you practical techniques in her demonstrations.

About the Instructor: Classically trained in Eastern Europe, Oksana began her art career in L’viv, Ukraine. Oksana studied at the Ivan Trush College of Decorative Arts. She chose to make painting, especially of murals, her specialty. In 2001, she held her first solo exhibition at the L’viv University of Ivan Franko. Oksana brings her training, skill, and passion to her painting, and she is versatile in expressive styles. She is adept at many genres, including portraiture, still life, and landscape.
