On Wednesday, 8th July 2015, Loïs Cordelia demonstrated portrait speed-painting from life, taking two hours from start to finish. The live art demo took place in the atmospheric setting of the Townhouse Restaurant, Ipswich, as part of a "Faces" themed charity art evening. 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, Amanda. The photographic series of work in progress shows how the portrait developed.
