I am an award-winning Professional Portraiture Artist. I have studied and lived in several countries and have clients worldwide. I have traveled extensively and speak English, Spanish and French.

Join me to learn the basics (and some secrets) to creating realistic portraits. Starting with a simple still life you will learn how to effectively render light and shadow to create the illusion of contour, shape and depth. Next you will draw your own eye, learning how to 'see' and express the glimmer that is uniquely you. Finally you will create a "head and shoulders" portrait of your own, using the technique that you have now mastered.

If you believe you have some hidden talent but lack of knowledge, or if you just simply have a burning desire to learn how to draw captivating portraits, then this is the class for you!

Nanybel’s subjects



I have been teaching the fine art of drawing and portrait painting for many years, mainly through private classes and an occasional professional workshop/presentation. When members of the royal family in Abu Dhabi (UAE)saw my work, they hired me to tutor privately in one of their exotic palaces. I was quite honored and spoiled as well. I also have experience teaching art on national television (I had my own TV segment in Caracas, Venezuela).

I am an award winning portrait artist and have been doing portraiture for over 40 years. I am a member of 4 Portrait and Pastel Societies.

The student will start by drawing a simple object with charcoal pencils (e.g. an apple) learning about shapes, light and shadow; then looking at his/her own reflection in a mirror will draw an eye(easier said than done). Will progressively continue with the drawing of a head and shoulders from a photo of his/her choice.

The student will learn at his/her own pace, since my goal is to make sure he/she draws with confidence and experiments with different subjects when not in class.
I am very generous in giving my students all the secrets and techniques I know to render a realistic portrait.
