Portrait / figure painting demo by dutch artist Jos van Riswick

Finally a movie again. Started this one, a larger painting, but wasn't happy with the light / colors so I didn't finish it. But I thought it would make a nice enough demo. Have been struggeling with my setup the past couple of weeks. I bought new daylight bulbs (solux) and have been trying them out. They seem to work well, but produce a lot of glare on the painting.

Also, this one was painted on canvas, instead of the usual cardboard panel. Painting on canvas is a completely different ballgame than panel. It is kind of difficult to fill up the weave, and also I have the feeling that I can't produce as dark colors as on panel. The advantage of canvas is that it is very easy to create smooth gradients, and also one can add touches of paint without disturbing the paint that is already there, without having to smooth out everything again. So one is a bit more flexible than on panel.....
