Speed-Painting against the clock: Live Portraiture and Knife Painting

April 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On Thursday 14th April 2016, Lois Cordelia visited the Marks Tey Art Club at the Tollgate Hall in Stanway, to perform an afternoon speed-painting demo, using acrylics. Thanks to a kind volunteer (Carl) who had offered to model, Lois had the opportunity to demo portrait painting from life, taking about an hour. Her second demo was loosely based on a black and white photo reference, which enabled her to demonstrate a range of other techniques using shimmering, iridescent and metallic colours, and expressive palette knife strokes, to capture the fiercely majestic spirit of a bald eagle. The following series of photographs shows work swiftly in progress - watch the clock on the wall behind...!
Special thanks to Annie for taking the photographs.
