    Hola! El curso me ha parecido sorprendente, sobre todo ver el
    comienzo,y comprobar el resultado final que sale de la nada. Sí me ha gustado mucho el modo de transmitir sus sensaciones atraves de la pintura. En general me ha gustado y servido para ver nuevos recursos y seguir experimentando.

    Me parece un curso maravilloso para entender el retrato. El que Santi explique lo que piensa y que pinte prácticamente en tiempo real es un plus. De lo mejorcito que he visto hasta ahora en retrato

    Me ha gustado mucho el proceso, el uso de la cuchilla de afeitar para mi ha sido muy nuevo, frases muy ilustrativas como ” dibujar la luz” o “tenemos mucho gris en la piel” Así que voy a intentar trasladar las técnicas aprendidas a mi trabajo. Es muy estimulante!
