WOW!!! The hands are done so realistically and the detail work on the accordian is magnificent! Thank you for sharing this demo. I hope you will do more.

I'm so glad I found this demo thread while wandering through Wet Canvas. Aldo, your proficiency and insight are breathtaking. Absolutely gorgeous work. I am so envious!

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

Amazing to hear you talking to yourself. I'm reassured when I note someone as accomplised as you can get annoyed with the process or want to hurry it to completion. That in itself is loads of instruction for a beginning painter.

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

oh my golly- cat beleive you tackled that accordian!! ha ha- thats cracked me up- i thought- no he'll keep it loose and just suggest it- then i scroll down and see you acually put the buttons in- you are nuts-lol total perfectionist...you really dont let anything slip away from you at all do you- yu just wont be beaten!
sorry im waffling......again.....i actually like yur palette- and notive yu start dark and then lighten it. Im going to post you my self portrait i did last night and see if yu can help me- but wont be able to do this till tomorrow til i get hold of my sons camera...i am pleased with my attempt- its reasonable- taken me about 15 years to get to just a "reasonable" effort, i find portraiture rediculously difficult- its really unfathomable how hard i found the process-
do yu find some faces harder than others? not being funny but i have quite fine little features.....its rediculously difficult. however ill send you a copy- and would be eternally grateful for yur input
