The Weymouth Art Association kindly asked me to conduct a live portrait drawing demonstration a few years ago. I was pleased to learn that the demo brought their largest event attendance of the year. Demonstrations allow me to present folks with an overview of my process. The event lasted two hours with a lecture beforehand and discussion breaks scheduled throughout. I used the three 20-minute work sessions to abbreviate a method that normally takes hours when working in the studio. To convey my approach, I: 1) established the initial placement of the three-quarter length seated figure, using the entire sheet of paper; 2) focused on the head to denote the separate shapes of light and dark, over which I; 3) introduced another level of detail and finish.
