Three-day workshop with Antonio Castelló Avilleira in Basel, Switzerland.

The workshop aims to guide students in the process of creating a hyperrealistic painting, with a focus on portrait painting using a photographic reference for interpretation.


You will learn layering and glazing techniques to achieve a realistic effect. You will learn the procedure for creating a Hyperrealistic Portrait using an 11-color palette. I will teach you step by step the exclusive technique I have developed.


You will learn how to make your painting stand out on the canvas with the Munsell Color System applied to Hyperrealistic oil portraiture. You will discover how easy it is to apply glazes and add details to create textures.


All the concepts and methods taught will be useful for creating any painting. Individual attention will be given to each student to enhance their technical and conceptual skills.
