Better than expected – learned to paint what you see not what you think you see.” – Marianne P. “This class exceeded my expectations! I learned so much and Paul is such a wonderful man.” – Toni D.

Paul Leveille was here just a week ago to each his 5-day workshop on creating expressive portraits. He showed his step-by-step process for developing a portrait starting with the large light and dark shapes, and then progressing to the detail. The group enjoyed working with a different model each day. IMG 0961
