Portrait Painting Tutorial | STEP-BY-STEP using ZORN PALETTE

In this portrait painting demonstration we are going to take it one step at a time. We will be using a 5-step process for creating a portrait painting in oil. Each step will build onto the previous step, and we will be doing this with the Zorn Palette. Remember, it’s never about copying a photograph. It’s about interpreting visual information and composing a painting.
