Testimonial:

Very much enjoyed your portrait demo for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society.  You employed very effective educational tools throughout the program and explained yourself well.  Your patience and kindness during the critique session was much appreciated.  Good job!
– Deb Ward, Membership Chair and President (Elect), Cincinnati Watercolor Society

Thank you so much for your informative demo and talk about facial features and their positioning on the face.  I learned more in the couple of hours than I have in many years of books and study.

Daryl Urig gave a creative presentation to my artist group this week. By drawing the audience “in” through a participatory exercise, we had fun as we absorbed principles of painting portraiture. Group members enjoyed his intelligent critique of individual paintings in a manor that respected both illustration and fine arts approaches while encouraging the entire group to think more deeply about our work. I am impressed with his teaching a wide spectrum of art knowledge from my experience in one of his painting knife workshops last year. His professional, yet relaxed manor works equally well for advanced artists and beginners.
– Nancy Wisely, Program Chair, Cincinnati Watercolor Society

  1. Daryl did a terrific job in a short time helping us with where to place the features of face. The balloons helped so much in understanding where the eyes, nose, mouth and ears are on most humans. I want to take one of his workshops now. These lessons apply no matter what medium you paint in. Thank you. Jane Hittinger, GCWS Member
