I have been asked to do a number of demonstrations recently, I think I mentioned a woodland scene earlier in the month which I need to do in a few weeks time. Someone else wants a demo on the subject of a townscape in the new year. I was unsure of which subject to tackle and thought I might try redoing a painting I posted in December last year. I made a few changes on this one to speed the process up and in fact I prefer this version to the first one I did.
The subject is good in that it allows me to complete it in a number of washes with the minimum of detail and so I can do it fast and this one was done in just over an hour. I believe I am performing after the AGM, so time might be of the premium. It reminds me of a demo I did a few years ago for a Round-Table group, who let slip fairly close to the demo that they generally allowed 20 minutes for the speaker. I had to relook at the landscape I had prepared to see where I could shave time. In the event I completed the demo in 19 minutes.
I reckon I have a little more time on this one, but I think the hairdryer might have to do its stuff to keep the momentum going. In the meantime I am considering doing a less frenetic version for sale on my website.
Other scenes of Liverpool are also available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
