So, what have I been up to this summer?....lots of demos & lots of teaching. This was a 1 1/2 hour Alla Prima portrait demo that I did at the Southern Vermont Art Center in July. I am teaching a Portrait Painting Clinic there September 21-22 (www.svac.org) and another at the Lyme Art Association October 6-7 (www.lymeartassociation.org). Executing a quick study involves setting down the right "pitch" and manipulating the value scale decisively to create a relative light effect. Here, my brighted note was in the model's hair.
