Kilmarnock Art Club Demo

I had a really enjoyable night demonstrating a portrait in oils. This isĀ  “The Waitress II”. Although this time it was slightly less than two hours, I feel I was concentrating more and hence I got more of a likeness. When the pressure is on, I suppose. Not sure if I have the same character of the last, but too tired to make a judgement. I am using Georgian oils here. They are pretty decent for student quality but I feel when mixing the paint I don’t get the body of paint I need. They tend to be weak on opacity, I think.kilmarnock demo 2013
