I have admired Mian Situ's painting both at the Gold Medal Show for the California Art Club and at the Masters of the American West Exhibition at the Autry Museum so when the CAC scheduled a portrait demo with him I jumped at the chance. It involved four 20 minute poses with a model. Above is his initial sketch and the model he was painting.
Mian was quick to block in the massed and was soon adding the lighter colors on the face.

Looks like you got a great view, Sharon... Glad you enjoyed it..
Yes, my seat was perfect but the way it was arranged gave most everyone a great view. They also had two screens with the image projected for those in the back. Mian is inspiring.
I so enjoyed looking at your site, artwork and the uploads of what you saw at the artist demonstration. WOW... THANK YOU for sharing. It brought a lot of joy into a rainy day.
Thanks Gracia. I appreciate your visiting and leaving a comment too. It isn't every day that you get to watch a master paint. Great experience.
