Portrait Painting Techniques – Part 2 with Graeme Stevenson

Born in NSW, Australia, Graeme has had a full and busy life, working in many different industries and carving an amazing pathway for himself in the art realm. 

He is the proud CEO and owner of Colour In Your Life TV Show, and just happens to be a talented and successful artist as well!


Colour In Your Life is available digitally online everywhere in the world; with film crews ready to go in Australia, United States (East and West Coast crews) and England!  Over 250 episodes have been recorded, and featured artists are enjoying great reviews and progressing their careers; and over 115,000 subscribers can view any episode totally free of charge.

In Part 1 of this demonstration, Graeme showed us some tips and techniques for working with acrylics and then oils in constructing a portrait of a young woman; including colour mixing for skin, and using specific brush techniques to create soft blends of colour with oils.
