Nick Baxter – Sharp Focus In Realism (Oil Painting)

Both formally schooled in oil painting at the college level and self-taught through years of honing his style in the tattoo industry, Nick brings these two worlds together into a simple formula in his specialty: Sharp-focus realism. Aimed specifically at helping tattoo artists who are seeking to expand their artistic practice into a second medium, this workshop makes many helpful comparisons between the tattoo and painting mediums; at the same time, it encompasses enough information to be of immense value to all aspiring realist oil painters, from beginner to intermediate level.
