Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

Thank you so much Aldo for sharing this one with us all.
It's fascinating to see your process of painting. A very challenging subject; I just love the way you captured the accordion, even the buttons don't distract. The skin tones and her expression, the composition-brilliant!

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

Thank you for this demo. You write as wonderfully as you paint -- no distractors, just clear, concise instructions. I'm also grateful for the way you answered everybody's questions so painstakingly. For a person like me, whose painting knowledge is so meagre that I don't even know what to ask, those questions and answers were very useful indeed. That was a truly complete learning experience. Thank you.

Re: Portrait demonstration in oils

It is facinating looking at the transition from one stage to the next. Beautiful work.
