 My zoom figure painting workshop (oils and pastels) worked out really well.  Wonderful group of students and they all adapted very well to the format.  Some of the photo references were mine and some from the internet just for studying.  Here are my demos from the two days.

MONDAY OIL DEMO 11/16/2020


Here is my demo from my Monday morning oil (now zoom) class.  I am posting the photo as well because part of the lesson was how to take what you need from a photo but also change it to your own vision.

I have recently been watching Portrait Artist of the Year 2020 on You Tube.  It is fascinating and fun to watch professional and non professional artists compete to win an ultimate prize of a 10,000 pound commission.  Each week 9 artists are chosen from their self portrait submissions and they are separated into 3 groups with a model in each.  The model is someone well known in Britain...some I recognize.  They have 4 hours to complete the painting.

Well, I decided I needed to try these as well so I take screen shots of the models and go from there.  Here are three so far.
