Maarten Welbergen is an Amsterdam based representational/ realism artist. He has been practicing and teaching for more than 20 years at Wackers academy, Amsterdam. He is an extremely talented and professional master artist and its a great opportunity to learn the techniques of European realism art from him. He will be conducting 5 session course on self portraiture in an online interactive course. This course is for intermediate level art students who like to learn from an expert. Self portrait study is a best way to begin learning portrait painting in oil. In this course he will teach you about the method of doing oil painting in Dutch traditional technique and he will explain methods of master artists. Maarten will start the lesson with examples of various famous master artists like, Rembrandt. He will explain about why a certain artist worked in a specific manner, what colors artist used and how the master artist moved his brushes. According to the examples the student will make a self portrait in front of a mirror and tries to put him/herself in the situation of the specific master. During the session the student has to send pictures of the development of the portrait via the whatsapp group, so Maarten can help correct them immediately and the other participants can also look to the proceedings. For students, It's best to use a painting board in the size of about 40 x 30 cm, prepare your canvas with an oil imprimatur of the color burnt umber.
