i am a portrait artist from southern california (where it is currently raining cats and dogs, go figure). i've only just recently discovered this amazing resource and community... though i have already begun making changes to my studio setup in order to benefit from mark's teachings.
i have a background in sculpture (BFA). however, the university i attended was not geared at all toward a realist perspective, and i received next to no training in painting.... so i have had to pull together what i know from the internet (not always the smartest thing to do). so i am thrilled to find mark's videos and this forum to further my education.
looking forward to participating!
