Oil Portrait Live Painting Demonstration

Last night, Glen Ellyn portrait artist David Penna had the audience in awe (or should we say ahhhhhh) as he captured the beauty of Lilah. Starting with a blank canvas, David talked about his process as he applied bold and delicate brushstrokes of oil to create the finished piece. David accepts commissions for portraits in oil, pencil, and charcoal.

Rough sketching begins the process.
