Speed-Painting Portraits: Work in Progress Series
On Saturday, 25th April 2015, Loïs Cordelia performed an all-day speed-painting portraiture demo at Tindalls, Colchester, completing three portraits between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm. Using a single large, chunky brush, A1 size coloured mountboards as canvases, and acrylic paints, Loïs swiftly captured each likeness, including one from a live model. The photographic series of work in progress shows how the day's speed-painting marathon developed.
