Saturday January 27th, portrait demo by John Glover

Members had the opportunity to watch a demonstration by John Glover of a portrait in oils. You will remember that last year he did a portrait in pastels for us. This time his subject was our vice chairman Eleanor Alison who made a very good model. In a limited time he produced an excellent likeness alla prima and had everyone completely engaged in his process. Thank you John.
