I am a classically trained artist who works primarily in oil.
My main genre is portraiture and I have taught life drawing and portrait painting in both the UK and USA.
Would be delighted to share many years of experience and teach from foundations of painting and drawing to more complex subjects like colour theory and composition.
My studio is located in downtown Santa Barbara but I am happy to travel and teach at your home as well as teach painting landscapes outdoors.

Deron is wonderful with my 7 year old granddaughter. Her parents are in the process of divorcing and she is having a hard time with it emotionally. Deron is patient and kind and allows her to direct the lesson with his guidance. She loves drawing and she really looks forward to her her lesson time with Deron.
Zaki
Deron is an absolute joy to work with. My dude ran off immediately after the lesson to draw some more. Now that's a positive review. :)
Nancy
It was great! Deron had me pick out a subject and send him the image ahead of time. He had it printed out and ready to go when I got there, along with the paint colors, brushes and everything. Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!

Online Oil Painting Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I can guarantee the profound change in his skill level (regardless of his age), after 2 months of the attentive following of my instructions. I like to watch the progress of my student and this is what brings me the best satisfaction in my occupation.
I think that every human being is unique with his own unique way of thinking and perception of the common things. When teaching, I believe in dialogue, for this reason, I never record my lessons on video, except for the promotional needs. I like to meet new students, to understand their way of thinking and to invent the individual teaching approach or methodology for each one of them.

About Danil

I am an academically trained professional artist with the overall working experience of about 20 years and an impressive record of exhibitions (two of them are museum one-man shows) in the USA and abroad. I am teaching in three languages: ENGLISH, HEBREW and RUSSIAN, representational, realist,

Great, passionate teacher
Ira Polubesova
I was very lucky to take private lessons with Danil - after only a few of them I had a clear systematic approach to my drawing process. I very much appreciate analytical way of work in art, and that’s what Danil was doing greatly : he sharpens the tools while keeping your individuality. Highly recommended!
