Doug Rugh, CM


To develop his portrait skills, Rugh worked regularly from live models in-between portrait commissions and the artist estimates that he has had over 2000 sittings (and counting) with live models. Rugh’s painting method is featured in an instructional DVD, “Capturing Character in the Oil Portrait Sketch”. The artist does uses photographic reference materials for portrait commissions but draws from hours of working directly from life.
