Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

A wonderful portrait demo.. amazing work ! I feel really inspired to have a go, even though I am not a portrait painter.

Is oil primer the same as gesso?

Thanks for sharing Aldo.

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

I just completed a portrait class and had a great deal of trouble with my materials. The teacher cme to my easel and made comment that she always had one person in the class with such problems. In my case we determined it was the Turponoid I had used with my underpainting. I can see that priming as you have would be much different. This thread has helped me understand why my paint was not handling properly. Thank you for the detailed description of how you prepared the canvas and what you did in each step. I love wetcanvas!

Beautiful work, Aldo! Her hand on our left is fabulous- you are a patient man to tackle the accordion face. Thanks for posting the demo!

Thumbs up Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

Wow what a great lesson! Thanks for breaking it down... I think I have been a little too hard with my brush strokes and can't wait to try what I have learned here! And beautiful work!
Thank you!

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

Amazing demonstration. Do you have anything you would consider a corporate portrait, head and shoulders. Thanks, Terry

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

I don't have hardly any corporate work , I must say it doesn't excite me too
much and I have turned a couple down , they are often portraits about their position rather than who they are. I did a charcoal of a retiring professor at Oxford from life in March , however , that was fun .
