On Saturday 6th September I demonstrated oil portrait painting at for the Sherbrooke Art Society. I decided to do a child's portrait as children are difficult to paint and i thought it would be a good thing to demonstrate for the members.
I painted the portrait in minimal colours and finished the painting in my studio as an hour and a half demonstration is far from enough time to complete a portrait in oil.
I have uploaded a two page PDF of the stages for anyone who would like to see the progress photos.
Colours used were:
- Terra Rossa (similar to Indian Red)
- Ivory Black
- Titanium White
- Sky Blue
