Master the Values, Textures and Shapes Working on 3 different projects!
Beginner to Advanced level
We kick off with 3 monochromatic studies, all handling different issues and techniques, as well as substrates and paint.
Never have we been able to cover so many ways to make a monochromatic painting: From minuscule details to soft smooth skintones, from precise erasing to controlled free handing, from fully transparent to opaque bases that are worked upon!
Discover our highly detailed and step by step online studies, all explained from A-Z. Nothing has been left out, so this will show you a full construction of each project. We also explain materials, surfaces, do’s and don’ts, so you can concentrate on becoming a successful artist.
Over 15 hours of detailed video tuition!
These workshops are designed for every artist out there that likes to Study Realism from Home with professional instructions and guidance.
Over 45 Video Lessons Available for you in this course!
You can now work at your own tempo and play back when you need to see the steps again.
This study will give you a steady base on which you can build up on any techniques. It is also closely related to our other online lessons in color (offered in the future) and workshops, since we use Values as our base.
Values and shapes really are the most important in painting, and once you can distinguish any subtle value and shape from one and another, you are pretty much unstoppable.
Join us today on our artistic Journey and let us guide you to a good end.
Watch the Videos from any Devices.
Our Video lessons are compatible with Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and Pc.
The lessons are divided in chapters and you will be able to play back and forward as many times as you need to complete your weekly task. You can then upload your image in our closed forum and wait for feedback via a personal video message!
We release a new block of Lessons each week, approximately 5 hours of content depending from the level of difficulty. It will require at least double the time to complete the weekly tasks yourself including watching.
Throughout the course you will see different materials and techniques passing by. In the second and third project, feel free to implement techniques and materials shown in the first project. Remember that there is never 1 way leading to Rome!
We are merely showing a big diversity on handling techniques and materials. This way we will build up your self-confidence and you will no longer feel stuck whenever you are painting something new.
We offer 3 different studies, each with a different approach and construction. Besides different techniques and projects we also change the surface for each study. Every surface has it’s own specific behaviour.
- The first is specific on Skin Textures, eye textures, lashes and eyebrow. Here we explain techniques such as blending, erasing, detailing, cutting and several handy techniques that you can use for each of your paintings. We also show ways to get your proportions right.
The surface we work on is Illustration board.
- In the second project we handle a smooth face, tonal values, subtle nuances and an in-depth study of Hair. We also change from transparent to opaque paint.
The surface we work on is Claybord.
- The third project is our top piece, we paint a profile of an old lady full of nuances and spots, as well as fuzzy and sharp little hairs. We put the focus on Free Handing and Erasing Techniques. For this project we mix our own lovely sepia color.
The surface we work on is MFX Canvas.
Build up Confidence: There is a bonus download available at the end of the course, to test your knowledge and make the final exam. This will not be demonstrated by Marissa, but all techniques are explained during the course and there is a short explanation at the end of the course on how to tackle the subject. There will be reflections, drops, in and out of focus, texture, lips and nose. After you have finished this piece you can send us the image and we will send you a detailed feedback list back with your final score!
All the techniques shown in this course are useful to any project you want to tackle in the future or implement into your own style. If you would like to brush up your skills some more and go for the online lessons in colour,(coming soon!) you will definitely be ahead.
Working with values is the cornerstone to each good painting.
We provide high resolution downloadable images and airbrush control practice sheets that you can print or have them printed in your favourite copyshop.
In each project you will pick up tips on diluting your paint, adjusting pressure, working with medium, using different tools to create similar effects and results. There is never 1 way that leads to Rome, so we did our very best to show you the ones that are most convenient.
The lessons are divided in several chapters, so that you can study in your own time each week. You can play back the lesson until you get it 100% and then do your magic.
*Our honest and direct feedback will help you to improve your results.
*All materials used can be ordered in our online shop, but of course you can replace them for the materials you normally use, and match colours and results as close as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Students Have To Say About our Courses
"Learning from Marissa and the Foxy Studio team It’s one of the best decisions I have made in my art career! I’d recommend their classes to anybody who wants to take their art to the next level. www.BeckyChanArt.com"
"Marissa is humble and down to earth, she loves to educate people and do this with great passion. This in combination with her unbelievable knowledge of airbrushing and other art forms makes it a real treat to join one of their classes. Because of the tutoring of Marissa, my airbrushing has been lifted to a much higher level than I would have achieved by myself. If you would ask me what to do, I would say "learning from a pro is the way to go""
"Marissa teaches the right techniques, swiftly, and you can see it at the end result. Even beginner students get really dazzling results. Another big plus is that Marissa teaches to give the painting an identity instead of just copying an exact static photo, capturing the essence, that’s all. And this is how we recognise the Artist’s true soul. My experience with them was really well worth it. www.anark-grafik.fr"
