Are you an advanced painter who would like a challenge? Have you painted portraits, figures, and still lifes with a certain level of success, and now you would like to try putting the three subjects together in one piece? Are you looking for the guidance of a master painter as you prepare yourself to tackle this challenge?

Imagine if you could strengthen your compositional skills and acquire advanced painting techniques? Michael Malm’s intensive course is designed for intermediate, advanced, and professional artists who want to put their portrait, figure, and still life painting training to the test. Join Michael Malm in this graduate-level workshop with in-depth discussions and hands-on demonstrations on design, composition, texture, and color temperature to create this realistic masterpiece using the painterly approach. You get to learn Michael’s end to end process from searching for inspiration, setting up the still life, photographing the model, preparing the reference, building up the texture, and solving problems as you finish the painting.

Michael will show you how he achieves realism with as few brush strokes as possible for a poetic painting. He breaks his entire process down over 15 hours. You will follow along, building up the layers, to create the same effect seen in the Russian masters’ paintings. You will have the opportunity to learn his signature techniques and master color variations and temperature shifts.

At the end of this course, you will be able to paint a full figure, with facial detail, and a still life arrangement with confidence!

BONUS Chapter: Painting Costumed Figure Outdoors

He will show you how he used the color notes from his plein air sketch to complete a studio painting. You will be able to understand the key elements to capture when you study from life and the decisions to transform a color study into a well composed gallery painting.
