Portrait Painting Techniques with Andrew Tischler

In this video, Andrew Tischler demonstrates techniques for getting started with your portrait. These techniques are beginner-friendly; toning the canvas, gridding up your reference and mixing skin tones.


“This Portrait Painting tutorial is loaded with information to help you take your portraits to the next level! We’re going to dive deep into the process with over 7 and a half hours of content!”
I have been working on this tutorial for a long while and it’s been in my mind for even longer. I wanted to come up with something that would provide students with the optimal techniques to push their portraiture further. “Painting Portraits” is a jam packed tutorial full of real, actionable techniques that you can apply directly to your own paintings. I wanted to bring all of my ideas together in one place and demonstrate my methodology in a simple, systematic way.

Many of us don’t have the time and luxury of painting from the model directly, so here in this tutorial I have purposely focussed on a process utilising photographic reference. We don’t have to just rely on what we are presented with, we can push this so much further!

My goal for every painting is to create the illusion of a 3 dimensional form on a 2 dimensional surface. Here, we’ll discuss in detail how I achieved incredible, eye-catching results and how you can do the same. I hold nothing back, and over the 7 and a half hours we have together you’ll gain a better understanding of tone, colour, form, composition as well engaging textured surfaces built up with slick brushwork.
