(Link to video) When I set up my easel on the sidelines of an old-time singing convention, I didn't know what to expect.
I worried that I would be disruptive, but they were so wrapped up in the music, they hardly noticed me. I just had to move my easel at one point to stay clear of the stampede at the lunch table.
On breaks, each of the women I was painting was pleased to see themselves show up in my sketchbook.

Once I realized that all the singers would be changing seats and moving around between songs, I had to streamline my approach. That meant: 1) Drawing with the brush, 2) Premixing commonly used colors, 3) Finishing each person in turn.
This video segment is 30 minutes long in the full tutorial. It's the longest single painting demo I've yet done on one of my videos. This was in response to a request from you to show longer and more complete coverage of paintings from start to finish.
