Bart Lindstrom demonstration


What a treat I had today. I got to watch another artist’s portrait demo. Top american portraitist Bart Lindstrom came to Lochgreen Hotel in Troon and entertained for two hours or so and produced a lovely oil painting of an ayrshire lass.
The painting progressed very slowly for the first hour and a half really. Bart concentrated on the shadowed areas right till the last quarter, then with a flourish, the lights and highlights were placed. The drawing was tightened almost imperceptibly and it was done!
I was impressed by how relaxed and chatty he was throughout the demo, yet still in charge of the process.
Throw in a fancy three course lunch, a glass of wine and we’re home happy.
