Demo Portrait of Fernando Freitas

On Monday I shared a lecture and demo to a full house at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto.

(Video link) The model for the demo was Mr. Fernando Freitas, co-founder of the Academy. Since I only had 25 minutes to do the drawing, I used the same technique that I like to use for sketching people “in the wild”— in restaurants, subways, or concert halls.

Materials: Caran D’Ache watercolor pencils and a Niji Waterbrush on a smooth Fabriano Watercolor Pads.

Thanks to Fernando, and to everyone who came to the talk at the Academy of Realist Art in Toronto, especially the folks who came all the way from Ottawa. And thanks, Lenny Dass, for shooting the video.
