Scott has done his usual outstanding job of painting this portrait from life. His attention to detail and description of his painting process makes for an excellent instructional video.
Scott's education began in high school with two extremely influential and supportive art instructors. This led to four years of intensive study at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. There he trained under many important instructors in the fields of Oil painting, Watercolor, Drawing, Anatomy and Sculpture. After his time at the Academy, Scott spent many years as an illustrator in a Chicago ad agency before pursuing his dream as a full-time fine artist. Scott is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America and is the founder of "The Plein Air Painters of Chicago" group.
Scott has received many awards from the Oil Painters of America as well as many other National shows and has participated in many prestigious invitational exhibitions in the United States, China, Israel and Europe. Scott work has appeared in many publications including American Artist, Art of the West, Western Art and Architecture and has had features in The American Artist "Workshop" Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine and Western Art Collector.
