Learn the secrets of hyperrealistic painting.
Here you will find my PDF 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.
Below are both tutorials I have released, and the ones I plan to do.
