Beginning with a photocopy enlargement of a close-up photograph of you or a loved one, you will transfer reference points of the face onto stretched canvas. Using fast-drying acrylic paints, you will create a one color under painting. Then layer by layer, and area by area, you will build up a likeness of the colored photograph. Starting with this fool-proof foundation, you will be amazed what a fine portrait can be achieved. You will take home your painting, brushes, and a set of tubes of acrylic paints.
