Thank you to all of our Patreon Supporters for making another Monthly Live Event possible!

Howard Lyon did a phenomenal job during his demo. He took us through the entire process of painting a portrait from life, all while fielding questions and explaining his thought process and materials. Howard graciously decided to do an additional hour for our viewers, allowing him time to really show some of the finer aspects of the painting.

For those who were unable to watch the event live, a downloadable version will soon be available to our Patreon Subscribers.  For everyone else, please enjoy a few snapshots from the event.

If you like what you see, and you’d like to learn more, consider signing up for Howard Lyon’s upcoming workshop. Along with fellow illustrator and Muddy Colors contributor, Dan dos Santos, Howard is hosting a 5-Day workshop on the art of the ‘Illustrative Portrait’.

As of the writing of this post, there are only 2 seats left for this workshop. More info can be found here:
