Reviews for “Old World Portraiture” with Daniel Graves:
I cant believe this!! Since yesterday I was thinking of finding a great teacher to guide me through portrait techniques and I woke up to read and see this video! Its simply amazing and awesome. Cant wait to visit the Florence Academy, in Italy.

I bought Daniel Graves Tutorial DVD Painting Portraiture and as an Artist who attend some workshop in Florence Academy/Italy, I can say it was amazing. I have already watched the DVD more than 10 times. Everything in that DVD reminds me of The Florence Academy method of painting. Even his Wooden palette, and the oil-paints he chooses for his palette all good.

When I began watching this video, my heart began to pound….this must be what it was like to learn from the Old Masters! Daniel Graves will take you through the complete painting process from making your own oils, the materials he uses and why, and how to apply a successful ground and imprimatura to your canvas. He will explain the importance of how the light falls on your subject, values, and how to make your portrait more interesting by provoking a mood from your sitter. This video is playing most of the time in my studio no matter what I am painting.
