David’s Portrait Drawing Video with Instructional Commentary is an extremely valuable resource for any portrait artist wishing to enhance their skills and technique.
The video is clear. It provides simple information and instruction on some of the issues that can elude a beginner. There are close-up views of the work in progress and you can see how the application of minor changes can have a major impact on the whole portrait.
Information about the type of materials is clear and concise and the video is packed with snippets of insight into the use of these to achieve the desired effect, which in this case is nothing short of superb!
This video is a gold-mine of information!
Thank you David for providing this so affordably.
Having ‘stumbled’ upon this video and David’s art school on-line, it’s my strong hope that further videos and in fact courses, will be available to download on Portrait drawing, painting and anatomy.

The video is interesting and instructive.During your initial form build up I found that the method I came up….on my own is pretty much the same with yours.However I found it interesting and educating how you developed it.I usually work a lot on my drawings ….but I understand now that I put to much effort and the end result is not as stunning like yours.So thank you for putting out this video.
Also a suggestion that maybe you can make a tutorial where you do some of your classes yourself and explain the process.And split it on parts so the price is not as big as the classes, so people with low income can purchase each part of the lesson whenever they can,while the sum of all the parts could end up in similar to the price you ask for the class.I’ve been trained in an academy and I know that nothing beats the real life studio work.But still people like me that are unable to do a class with you(since I’m from a different country), can still receive the knowledge you have and wish to share.
I personally love to work with light in black and white, so naturally these two videos grabbed my attention. David demonstrated how he could produce a work of art that is just as full and enriching as any full blown finished work in color while working within these restricted color and medium variables. I can’t wait to give it a try myself! Thanks very much, I thought the concept you introduced was awesome!
