My demo on 2/10/2011 was a big success. I was nervous in the beginning because this was my first demo and I wan't sure what I was going to talk about. I decided to draw Country Singer Trace Adkins. I love his music and I think he has an interesting face.
He has a soft soul but also a certain toughness about him that I wanted to capture both. I wasn't able to finish the portrait as I only had 2 hours and I needed about 200. I plan on finishing Trace.
Here's another update. I took the photo with my phone from my drawing table. I have the faces just about finished. I started working on the clothing. I have maybe another day or two to work on this then I should be able to call this finished.
On Thursday February 10th, I'll be joining 4 other artists as we demonstrate our techniques and share our experiences as artists with the residences of the New Horizons at Choate in the Terrace Lounge located in Woburn.
I am excited as this will be my first demo where I'll be speaking to an audience about my art and sharing my blending technique and the tools that I use.
