How To Paint Ears – Oil Painting Tutorial

In this video, I’ll share how I paint realistic ear anatomy in 4 simple steps using the underpainting & glazing techniques.

These techniques will work whether you’re an acrylic or oil painter!

This is part of a portrait anatomy series where I teach you how to paint each facial feature step by step.

I hope this helps, & let me know if you have any questions.
