Advanced Portrait Masterclass

  • Workshop only $1120
  • Including meals and lodging $1795

This hands-on advanced workshop covers the techniques involved in creating compelling portraits. Realistic skin texture is one of the most difficult aspects of portrait painting. In this advanced portrait workshop, Dru will demonstrate his approach to painting convincing skin textures, as well as lips, eyes, facial hair, backgrounds and many other attributes that make up a well-executed realism painting.

 No other airbrush workshop offers a portrait class at this level.

Class is limited to 12 and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Advanced Portraits is a single project class with a male subject
  • The students will learn development of advanced skin textures, hair, and eye colors with extreme accuracy and precision
  • Students proficiency at mixing and match colors perfectly, using Dru Blair's Color Buffer Method, will be tested.


You must have taken at least one Portrait workshop with Dru Blair prior to enrolling in this advanced Portrait Workshop. There will be no first-day morning lecture so you will have more time to work on your projects. You should be familiar with color matching using Dru Blair's Color Buffer Method. In-depth study of color will not be covered in this class.

What a challenge! Great learning experience and just as the title of the class states"Advanced Portrait" With Dru leading you through all the advanced techniques of painting skin pores, textures, hair highlites, mixing colors right on your art work, items that you would normally learn in a "Master's Class" in Europe. Did I mention textures, textures and more textures that make your portrait truly photo-realistic. With Dru's direction and his ability to instill confidence in each of the students, we all accomplished an advanced portrait to be proud of.
