This Top Studio Painting Expert Reveals the REAL Secrets to Painting Stunning
Portraits and Self-Portraits…
THEY SAY that painting a portrait is difficult and that painting a self-portrait is extremely difficult…
THEY SAY you'll fail over and over before you succeed…
THEY SAY you'll spend countless hours pulling your hair out in frustration before you come away with anything you can be proud of…
But WE SAY they're wrong!
What if we could show you the secrets to painting stunning portraits by teaching you to paint self-portraits … even if you've never tried before?
But first, why would you even want to learn to paint a self-portrait to begin with?
Here's the thing:
If you're an artist — or you aspire to be one — there are THREE CRITICAL reasons you should be painting self-portraits right now.
Reason #1: You have a model who's available anytime!
There's no need to spend $15-$30 an hour for models to sit for you for countless hours while you learn and experiment when all you need is a mirror…
Reason #2: It's a PROVEN path to painting mastery.
The best painters throughout history have painted themselves over and over again, because mastery comes from practice, and from great instruction. Rembrandt used self-portraiture as a learning tool and produced a lifetime of self-portraits.
The truth is that this is a time-honored way to practice working with light, shadow, form, color, and all the features of a living subject.
And since you're working with the same subject over time (yourself), you're able to learn faster and see better results on the canvas!
Plus, you don't need to be in a hurry because you're always available to pose when you're ready to paint.
Reason #3: It's enjoyable and historically important!
Let's face it: Painting should be a joyful process, where you can fully let go and embrace the act of creation without time constraints or fear of judgment.
With self-portraits, it's just you, your paint, a mirror, and an unlimited world of possibility.
Plus, art historians are grateful for self-portraits done at every stage of an artist's life, not only preserving the artist ' s look at the time, but documenting their path and their style.
So here's the $64,000 question:
Won't it take years of grueling study and mountains of paint and canvas before you get the process down?
But having the right instructor will make a world of difference in your progress.
We consider it our job to find you the right teachers to help you take your painting to the next levels at the right time.
And that's exactly what we've done.
This Master Portrait Artist Will Guide You, Step by Step, to Creating Your Very Own Masterpiece That Will Leave Your Viewers Speechless…
Gregory Mortenson is one of the most well-regarded portrait artists working today. His spellbinding, emotionally charged portraits can be found on display in fine art galleries from New York to Barcelona.
We would need to write a short novel to list all of the awards he's won over the years, and that's why so many magazines, like American Artist Magazine, International Artist, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Plein Air have featured him.
As you can tell, both critics and collectors love Gregory's work. But here's what's REALLY important to YOU as an artist:
Gregory is a world-class teacher with a remarkable talent for helping others improve their painting skills as rapidly as possible.
That's one of the reasons so many people flock to his portrait drawing and painting classes at Grand Central Academy in New York. (And you should too, if you live nearby.)
The bottom line?
If you want to learn how to paint a stunning portrait, then this is the man to help you do it!
Recently we invited Gregory to come to our studios to document his in-depth process. We asked that he hold nothing back and take all the time necessary to show every element of the process and every important brushstroke, so that you can master every step as you paint your own portrait.
It was our goal to make this the most in-depth, detailed video we've produced, so that anyone wanting to master portraiture or self-portraiture would have a tool they can refer to time and again for decades to come as they grow their skills as a painter.
We also requested that he reveal ALL of his best-kept portrait painting secrets, and he over-delivered in a BIG way…
Gregory covered EVERY single step in his painting process in what became one of the most in-depth and comprehensive recordings we've ever created.
This is Gregory's ALL-NEW and exclusive step-by-step video training collection that shows you everything you need to know to create your own incredible self-portrait …
…from the very first steps of setting up your materials and lighting to adding the finishing brushstrokes to your own personal masterpiece.
He shares everything and explains exactly WHY he makes each decision, carefully demonstrating every single brushstroke so you can incorporate his techniques into your own work.
Does that sound exciting to you?
