While travelling the United States by train I stopped in Washington, DC for a few hours to paint and visit museums. Check out a painting of the White House and a portrait of my wife, both from life. Can’t wait for the next stop!

Experience how I paint the human figure. I explain every thought of the process, and you will see me apply every mark on the canvas in my latest video:

To see me in action painting a portrait of my wife from start to finish, while sharing my thought process in almost 20 hrs of instruction, click the link below:

Witness my whole process of drawing the figure, from the construct stage to the final layers of rendering. You will hear my every thought and see every mark of charcoal on the paper:

  1. Using the term “cheesy” when talking about the White House isn’t fair just because we have a cheese ball occupying it until 2020. I Just love your work and vlogs

  2. A very informative video Mr. Santos and I'm genuinely pleased to see your efforts in honouring the artists shown by captioning their names.

  3. 2:28 This is Uygur flag. Uygurs are ancient Turks living in China. They are oppressed by Chinese government and inhumane conditions are there.

  4. Great stuff (as always!), maestrissimo. Have a marvelous trip, you two (or is the trip finished already?).
    (I have a couple of large-ish 19th-century-themed figural paintings in Washington – they are in the erstwhile Sears House on Pennsylvania Ave, opposite the National Gallery. I painted them in the late 1970s – one of my very first commissions! My first wife and I posed for ALL the figures; a collector loaned us some fabulous 19th-century dresses for Stephanie to pose in. I just made up my "19th-century" clothing, of course.)

  5. YOU WERE IN WASHINGTON?! WHEN?! NOOOOO!!! I live in D.C. And I missed you :'( cries. Hopefully one day I can meet the living master!
