Portraits from Life and Sacrifice

Creating a likeness of a person is one of the greatest challenges an artist can face. In this book, Ken Pridgeon makes the challenge much easier and more attainable for the average artist with a desire to become portrait artist. You will learn how to paint a portrait that will astound your friends in one set of lessons. The system has been perfected in this manner because I can not afford to paint a good portrait for one grieving family and a poor one for the next. Every portrait must depict the fallen hero in a pleasing manner so as to Celebrate his or her life in the act of Living! Many will be smiling and even Living their lives to the fullest with a zest for Life... Everything I show you took me 75 years and many failures to accomplish. You do not wake up one morning a portrait artist. I failed my way to success as a portrait artist as I’m sure most artists do. All that I can promise is that there are hundreds of ways to paint a portrait; this is mine. I have studied Norman Rockwell and many hundreds of others in my 81 years, and I am offering you my best.

 

About the Author

Ken Pridgeon

There are a few things about life we need to understand before thumbing through this book. It took me 75 years of NOT being dedicated, but of being undecided, about whether I wanted to become a Portrait Artist. I looked up to and admired anyone talented enough to attain such a high standard in art ability; that wasn’t me. And if you tell yourself you can’t do something, you can’t. So first, you must convince yourself that you ARE a portrait artist. If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish it. Just follow the simple formula in my book. I know for sure it will work every time. Every portrait begins the same way in the same place. I must keep it simple because I can’t afford to paint anything but the best at every opportunity...
