Portrait Demonstrations

Because I won the Gold Award at the Mid-Southern Watercolorists 2007 Annual Exhibition, I was invited to present "How I Did It" at the January MSW meeting.  Because of time constraints, I spent most of the time describing my portrait-painting process, and just demonstrated a few of the steps.  I've attached a photo of me in the process.  (It was more fun than it looks like.)
I'll be repeating this program at the Brush Strokes meeting on February 22.  There, I'll do the painting vertically, to avoid having to have the overhead mirror set up.  I've also prepared a handout of the steps so people can leave with some simple instructions.
