Learn the secrets of hyperrealistic painting

Very soon I will be publishing my tutorials aimed at beginners and intermediates who want to learn how to paint more realistically.
I will show you special techniques that I use in my paintings in both acrylic and oil painting, airbrush and colored pencils.
There will also be complete step-by-steps from idea to finished painting with all techniques I use to make the painting look more like a photo.
