Demo at the National Art Club

This past Friday, I participated in a group demonstration for Studio Incamminati at the National Art's Club in NYC. This demo was part of the show "The Artists of Studio Incamminati Exhibit" by the Founders, Instructors and Alumni. I joined instructors Leona Shanks, Lea Wight, Alisyn Blake, Peter Kelsey and Joe Dolderer. Leona and Joe demoed a color study approach, while Lea and Peter painted the model in full color. Alisyn demonstrated charcoal first and open grissaile second. I demonstrated 'duo tone' or closed grissaile. A good number of people braved the wet and cold weather, contributing to an interactive discussion between the audience and the demonstrating artists.  To our luck, we had a wonderful model, who sat so still it was like painting a still life.  Great painting with great artists and friends!
