Work in progress series: 2 hour portraiture speed-painting from life
On Sunday, 21st June 2015, Loïs Cordelia demonstrated portrait painting from life in the form of speed-painting, taking two hours from start to finish. The live art demo took place in the beautiful setting of the Long Hall Gallery at Layer Marney Tower, near Colchester, as part of an exhibition of the CO3 Art Gallery (Colchester). Using a single large, chunky brush, an A1 size coloured mountboard as a canvas, and acrylic paints, Loïs swiftly captured the likeness of her live model, Jason Curtis. The photographic series of work in progress shows how the portrait developed.
