Step by Step Tutorials

With over 25 years of painting faces and freely sharing tutorials along the way, naturally I have amassed an enormous collection of step-by-steps! I am still in the process of gathering them all together from my archives for you to find conveniently, right here! Below you will find a visual catalog of links that will take you to YouTube videos, blog posts and past e-newsletters that contain video or photo step-by-steps. Each are marked with an icon to identify whether they are photo or video tutorials. Please feel free to give them a try and enjoy! I would LOVE it if you are able to tag me on social media if you share your results! You can find/tag us on Facebook and Instagram @Paintertainmentdotcom.
