In this tutorial, we learn how to paint a portrait. Start off by having a subject to draw, then hold your paint brush loosely. Start to outline the face of the subject, then paint in the facial features. Shade around the eyes and cheekbones, and add the ears to the face. Use the paintbrush to create different types of strokes to the painting that fit the face you are looking at. Use shading to your advantage, because this can make a person look older or younger, depending on where you place the shading. When finished allow your portrait to dry and be proud of what you created!
