[WORKSHOP] Portrait Backdrop Workshop

April 5 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm UTC-5

Elegant Couple Omar and Ashleigh

Create Your Own Professional “Oliphant Style” Canvas Portrait Backdrop

April 5h 2019

There will also be a tutorial video produced from the workshop available as a digital product after the event for all those who can’t physically be there!

There seems to be a lot of confusion about how to create your own canvas portrait backdrop and I would like to guide you through it in a hands-on workshop where, under my supervision, you will create your own professional #12 duck canvas background.  The backdrop we create will be a 6’x9′ mottled grey background ideal for portraits and headshots suitable for both people and pets.


Only 6 hands-on spots available

During the workshop, I will paint my own backdrop while you follow along and paint your own.  I will be available to help guide you the whole way so you will be able to create your own background not just at the workshop but you will have the skills to do it yourself in the future.

I Will Supply

  • Canvas
  • Paint
  • Roll to store it on
  • brushes, rollers, and tools to create the “mottled look”

You Will Receive

  • a completed mottled grey canvas background on a roll
  • guidance and instruction to complete the background
  • the joy of knowing you can create your own professional backgrounds!
  • a video tutorial created during the workshop

The workshop is open to 6 participants to work on their own canvas backdrops 

I will also open it up to 6 observers once the initial 6 spots have filled (estimating 149.00 each)


If you are ready to book this workshop simply email me @ info@ronclifford.com and I will forward the payment information
