Portrait Demo at the Yellow Barn Workshop

On Sunday night we had a sold-out audience for my mini-workshop at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo Park, Maryland.

After my lecture presentation, I did a half-hour gouache Portrait. My model was Steve Hanson, who was wearing a reproduction antique vest and coat. Steve has portrayed John Brown in a historical reenactment at Harper's Ferry.

I used a limited palette of gouache: Light Red by Shinhan Pass, plus Yellow Ochre, Ultramarine Blue, Ivory Black, and Titanium White (M. Graham) in a Pentalic watercolor journal.

I did my preliminary lay-in with a Brown Caran d' Ache watercolor pencil and I finished up with a White Supracolor pencil for those few stray beard hairs and other accents.
Thanks, J. Jordan Bruns, for organizing the event, and to model Steven Hanson.
