Final session of 2014: Portraits After Dark

12th December 2014 marked the final session of OIC Portraits After Dark at Red Dot Museum. I had a good feel  illustrating the posers after some intense comic-drawing. The most rewarding result is to have them all bought by the posers.

First portrait of the night for a returned-visit family. A fantastic warmup!

3rd piece with my new try-out. I masked the area which I intended to paint on after creating the outlines. This set the focal point of the portrait.

A closeup of the 3rd piece. It is interesting to blend 2 colours from the ends and create the 3rd colour in the middle. This also set the intense relationship between the 2 posers with their eyes drawing to each other.

It took a little longer to do this because to draw 3 in 20 minutes is not that difficult, but to capture the right essence is crucial. I am pretty proud of this.

In the process of the 5th and last piece of the evening. Notice the masking tapes covering the unpainted areas.

Another angle of the 5th piece. I do not draw to 100% closeness, rather capture the feel, emotion and essence of that moment of the posers.
