I’d also like to say that having the Hu course (also here) and the Todorovich one at the same time is really great. I really like seeing both masters’ approaches to painting, it is very valuable to see their perspectives.September 23, 2020 at 10:40 pm #775088Jayson MondalaParticipantNo badges. No points.
I neglected to mention Steve Huston’s expansive course, and I haven’t even started with John Asaro’s and the other painting courses here. I’m watching a little bit every day.October 17, 2020 at 12:10 am #833012zainruizParticipantNo badges. No points.
As an artist and a creative professional you always want to push the boundaries and come up with an incredible result.To do that, the best thing that you can do is to have the right guide and muse to help you take your project to the next level.
The body-kun figures for drawing you can find on our website, are designed to bring your creative ideas to life in a clever and unique way.We know how much work and commitment goes into every creative piece that you make. It’s very challenging and time-consuming, especially when you want to complete a portrait.November 5, 2020 at 6:21 am #890048April RoccoParticipantNo badges.

There’s a complete video about all the materials he uses April 😉December 23, 2020 at 10:08 am #1035417Darrin MaierParticipantNo badges. No points.
Hey, I have a question about this course. I see in the beginning when he uses gamsol and black paint to draw and create a wash to create a portrait. If that’s the only step I wanted to do in a painting could I varnish it that way?
Thanks!January 5, 2021 at 10:32 am #1072766January 5, 2021 at 10:45 am #1072813January 26, 2021 at 5:20 am #1134822Claire VdhParticipant
I am just starting with the basic drawing lessons, I can’t wait to try this course later on!! Feeling excited !January 26, 2021 at 6:04 am #1135027Paulo SpínolaParticipantNo badges. No points.
The course is really amazing. I feel like Joseph is a close friend, he seems to be a nice guy to hang out with. And also he is a great teacher! I will share some of my trainings in the forum (don’t know where is the right place to do so yet). Greetings, everybody!January 26, 2021 at 6:23 am #1135106Paulo SpínolaParticipantNo badges.

I guess this is the right place to post the course lessons, so here it is!
This is the portrait for the first lesson! What do you guys think I got right and what should I practice more?
I used oil on a wooden panel primed with acrylic gesso. Not the best option as the surface was a bit rough, as you can see in the picture. But I still liked it.

I love it!January 26, 2021 at 10:02 am #1136213Susan GardnerParticipant
I have 2 questions:
The lemon yellow in your limited palettes very intense and also in your video it seems very light? Am I hearing that correctly?
Also, because surfaces are important to color and brush strokes – is there something cheap that you would use for exercises?
Thank you Susan
I really love your class…January 27, 2021 at 2:41 pm #1139672Natalie MontelongoKeymasterNo badges. No points.
Jayson, we are glad to hear you enjoy the course and references. 🙂February 3, 2021 at 1:40 am #1159111SmudgeParticipantNo badges. No points.
Loved his portrait painting course — one of NMA’s best courses imo. Colour used to scare me; now it’s a little less scary. He explains things so well. Thank you, Joseph! (Also, have just seen the outline of “from paper to canvas” course — really looking forward to learning about how he paints figures. And keen for more figure painting tutorials in general. I find it quite hard finding figure painting tutorials online).
