Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting

Preparing for my art store demo this Saturday as a Liquitex artist rep.
This gentleman was one of my drawing students last semester at Sacramento City College. He knew how to draw very well, and had an interesting face and was wearing a very cool looking knit cap when I took a photo of him. This is a sequence from acrylic start to finish. I first did a monotone "grisaille". When I was satisfied with my grisaille value balance, I then launched into layering on colors until I was satisfied. This is a small study for a much larger acrylic demonstration painting. The demo will be this Saturday afternoon at University Art store here in Sacramento. I will also be talking about the Liquitex tools and paints I use. I am a Liquitex Artist Outreach Rep., and will be painting in front of about 50 people who have signed up for the demo.
