Artistry Old World-Style Portraits Webinar Description
It is an interesting turn of events that as state-of-the-art Corel Painter paintings based on photographs grow in popularity, the nature of the paintings that are catching on is the old world-style portrait!

And in this webinar taught by Elite Corel Painter Master Karen Sperling, you will learn to paint with the ingredients that go into these time-honored kinds of artwork, including the art lessons and Corel Painter steps. You will see step-by-step workflow from start to finish, in addition to studying the art theories and Corel Painter tools used in the process.
