Demo of Sarah(2)

sarah comparison

Here is another demo of the portrait of Sarah. This time for Cunninghame Art Club.  It’s funny to compare the two paintings. Same rules (two hours painting and answering questions)and conditions for both and obviously the same picture but there are slight differences. Check out the left side of the mouth – I haven’t made it wide enough here. Also the forehead at the left side on the second picture looks more correct. One big change from the point of view of applying paint was the fact that I started from a white ground on picture 1 and a reddish ground in the second painting. It was easier painting on the coloured base because there was no rush to fill the gaps as they serve as a middle tone and the final painting looks warmer and relaxed.
