Another demonstration of alla prima portraits and the joy of this technique. It is the most fun you can have with a paintbrush, to complete a head, or any subject really, in one sitting. The finished painting is sketchy but hopefully vigourous and lively.
This two hour sketch was for the Tuesday HAC class who are mostly beginners in portrait painting, certainly all beginners in oils. Everyone went away enthusiastic to return in the autumn and looking forward to oily challenges.
Once again, phone photo. Quality is poor!
