Cesar Santos and his Sketchbook

Cesar Santos and his Sketchbook
// Gurney Journey

 Cuban-American portrait painter Cesar Santos uses his sketchbooks for mixed media, including oil.

He started this portrait in pencil, sealed the surface with fixative, and then used semi-transparent layers of oil over it. 

He also makes master copies from statues in museums, changing them a bit to add natural hair and realistic eyes with irises. 

Santos introduces this sketchbook on a video sketchbook tour (Link to YouTube). 

Trained in Florence, Santos has traveled the world to "see masterpieces through the eyes of his sketchbook." On his re-energized YouTube channel, he promises future videos that take us deeper into this and other sketchbooks.
