Live Speed-Painting Demonstrations (Acrylics), by Lois Cordelia

"Remarkable! I only went away for five minutes, and came back, and you'd almost finished...!"

Lois Cordelia regularly performs live "speed-painting" demonstrations all over East Anglia and beyond, at art shops, galleries, cafes, art clubs, exhibitions and corporate events. Working on a large scale using acrylics, she explores a wide range of subject matter, including portrait-painting from a live model, human and animal portraits, townscapes and landscapes. Lois often chooses unusual canvases, making creative use of the original to contribute to a new artwork. Her speed-paintings typically feature sweeping strokes and bold colours, including iridescent, shimmering and metallic paints. She welcomes an audience while she works, so don't be shy - come along and watch, ask questions, and be inspired to have a go yourself!
