|Portrait painting demonstration
with Luis Alvarez Roure
March 24, 2013
The public was invited to a free portrait painting demonstration by Luis Alvarez Roure (interview) the day after his show at the Crary ended. With no charge for attendance, people were free to come and go for any portion of the demonstration.
After entering her name with several others who donated $10 for the chance, Pat Evans' name was drawn to be the subject of the portrait. She posed for four hours at the Gallery, and later took home the portrait of herself - a 20-inch by 20-inch oil painting on canvas.
A changing audience watched as Luis Alvarez Roure demonstrated his alla prima technique, painting a portrait of Pat Evans, below.
