We had the first session out of two in our art club with Andy James , the subject is portrait. What a refreshing approach, from a great modest and passionate painter as you can see from the link above. Andy had an interesting style and like a true painter it all comes from within, great technique and amazing skill. I am some 25 years behind Andy on painting…so there is plenty work and practice for me to do… the first was a quick sketch that we all painted after Andy finished an amazing oil sketch demo of Sarah while entertaining our questions non stop. as always I changed a bit later..
We had the second session and I have decided to use Oil water based paints on canvass paper for this second project. After watching Andy last time I felt that even I don’t have the experience in years I can still confidently paint and put strokes of paints amend and correct. So I created my final ‘Sarah’ and I hope you enjoy it. As always, I do have great time and enjoy every minute when I paint. You probably don’t recognised Sarah any more from the first painting I think she looks more real in the second Oil my last version. I think there is more feel, energy and expression in this one too. Enjoy.
