Hands are notoriously difficult to paint. Portrait painter Ben Lustenhouwer comes to the rescue. In this video, he shows you how to make them look real.

Hands are intricate and can be in many different positions. The trap that many painters fall into, is trying to capture every little detail. Instead, by using the right painting techniques, you play with light. This bring the painting to life. Follow Ben’s steps and practice your own hand-painting.

Portrait painting with Ben Lustenhouwer
Ben Lustenhouwer is an internationally known portrait painter. In this video series, he shows you his secrets to creating lively, bright portraits. He does this by demonstrating four different paintings: one of a young boy, one of a young girl, one of a young lady and one of a mature friend.

For each painting, there are two types of videos. In one video, the whole painting process is demonstrated in full, allowing you to get a feel of how you can approach this yourself. In the second video, Ben zooms in on a specific aspect of portrait painting. He provides clear explanations, so you will be able to apply his techniques in your own portraits.
