Painting a portrait with Jon Houglum

Through the wonders of Pinterest, I found these videos by Jon Houglum that I wanted to share with my students from my Plaster and Wax class. The class is ongoing and up for a year (from May) so you can still join in the fun.

To my students, although he is working with oils, you can apply the same technique using acrylics. This is a fantastic lesson.

    Jon is a fantastic artist whose talents range from the Old Masters to realism. He not only finds time to paint, but also teaches and makes videos that allow you to see a painting created from start to finish. Thanks to Caroline, his wife, who makes it possible for Jon’s work to be seen on the internet. Check out his website Thanks for featuring him Kathie. Here is another North Carolina artist you may like… Bryan’s work usually incorporates something to do with the seacoast where he lives. Although he also has some Quiet Man paintings that are loved ,by Duke Wayne , Maureen O’Hara and John Ford fans. Keith Payne
