Morgan Weistling

This is my first post on this blog, because Morgan inspired me to get back into painting.

His website features three step-by-step painting demos. All are figurative works. All are oil on canvas.

To be honest, the demos are intimidating, because accurate portraits seem to blossom onto the canvas with little preparation. If you really want to see how he works, do what I did -- buy his video. I bought the four DVD set, in which he paints an entire gallery painting on camera. Hardly a stroke is left out of the video. It's extremely informative, and will definitely inspire you to dust off those old brushes.

Weistling spent many years as an illustrator. That's a very demanding field, and anyone who was successful as an illustrator comes away with kick-ass skills.

Here's the link to his website. Click the DEMOS link on the menu on the left hand side of the page.
