Dalry Demo

Jamie demo


A demo from this afternoon at Dalry Art Club. This is Jamie who came to visit the studio on Saturday with his family. (Dad “Richard” is painted in a previous post  *here*!)

Cool clean skin tones, quite bluish and great to paint. The natural light comes in from a door to the right. The session lasted an hour and a half and I spent another hour at home to finish. Thanks to all at Dalry and Kilbirnie for the opportunity. 🙂

  1. Superb job!

  2. Beautiful work, David. This is an oil?

  3. Fantastic work! I had to look twice and read that it was done in oil. Liquin is pretty neat, I need to use mine more often. Very nice work.

  4. You did this in hour and a half? Did you let him take a break?

    • Hi Maggie, this was an hour and a half at the demo and a further hour at home. I used photographs of Jamie.I had Jamie in the studio a few days earlier to take photos for a commission. I couldn’t paint like this from the model! 🙂

  5. Gosh, this is so beautiful! Love the fresh colors and the look on his face.

  6. That is brilliant. Callum, Jamie’s cousin, said that looks like the real Jamie!!

  7. I am still amazed, David, that you could produce such a accurate and characterful portrait of Jamie so quickly. I can only agree with Helen that it is brilliant. For your followers I declare an interest in that Jamie is one of our grandchildren. Very well done.

  8. Hi David,
    This is really great. Really captured something of Jamie.
