The demo begins with a grisaille. This image, taken after the first 20 minutes, shows the beginning of the color block in on the shirt.
Here is the painting after the second break,about 40 minutes. Notice how the model's white shirt shows the effect of the warm, artificial light.
Here is the demo after about 2 hours. Strong color is being developed all aver, and the face is being highly developed.
The audience was able to also see the painting enlarged on a screen to Nelson's left. Nelson isanswering questions from the audience. Student artwork (drawings) from Studio Incamminat are in the center background.
Here is an image from the enlarged screen. Nelson began with very strong color notes in the face. As the painting developed, they did not seem unusually strong, but fit in beautifully. This is always amazing to watch.
