Why this course?


Hi friends,

Here is an introductory course to portrait painting. Through this course we will learn to bring the sketches to life usingbetter blending techniques. Sketches for the class will be provided well in advance. You are expected to keep the sketches ready. You cn use any of the following method to create your sketches:

  • free hand drawing
  • grid method 
  • tracing using carbon sheet
  • tracing using mobile apps
  • lightbox tracing

Feel free to enquire about implementation of any of the above techniques.

If you would like to learn to sketch free hand portraits. I have collaborated with an amazing artist whom I admire a lot and learnt a lot from - Nikita Chhabra. She has her own academy for learning and graciously agreed to give my students a 20% discount when they subscribe to this course. I will share the link here to the class that you get 20% off. So when you purchase this course, and purchase her course too, you can avail this discount. I myself have attended and highly recommend this course to all artists.



Surfaces: Canvas - canvas roll is recommended as these are easy to use, store or frame and economical. Also gives you more time to blend. Other options would be stretched canvas or canvas board, canvas pads (size A4 and A3)                                                            Drawing Book -  an ordinary school drawing book for practicing different techniques, strokes and making notes for you to refer along for all your future projects.

Brushes: Flat brush - 0,2,6,10                                                                                                                                                                                Round brush - 000, 2, 6                                                                                                                                                                            Liner Brush                                                                                                                                                                                              Oval mop or blender brush (alternatively any old makeup brush will also do)

Paints: I will be using Camel Fabrica 20 color set. With this you will need yellow ochre.                                                                   List of colours: Lemon Yellow, Chrome Yellow/Golden Yellow, Orange, Flesh Tint, Scarlet/Vermillion, Crimson, Magenta, Light Violet/Purple, Light Blue/Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Prussian Blue, Light Green, Dark Green, Sap Green/Olive green, Burnt Sienna, Burnt umber, Yellow Ochre, Black, White

Miscellaneous: Bowl for water, old rags, pencil, eraser, palette (preferable big flat one without wells or large wells)

Recordings will be provided for all classes albeit a little later. Assignments will be shared too and encouraged to be completed by the given deadline to make your progress smoother.

I am stoked to meet you and help you in your portrait journey. Waiting to see you in class

Much Love,                                                                                                                                                                                            Prakrathi
