OIC Portrait Day - 7th August 2010

I was at the OIC Portrait Day at the Red Dot Museum at Maxwell Road. I arrived almost at 3:00 pm.

Old JF was running the show, briefing the models and introducing them. He was also sketching.

The session had lasted from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm. I was tired as it was the end of a long, working week. I have had not enough sleep throughout and I had worked till 1:00 pm on Saturday.

Each group of people modelled for fifteen minutes before another two were invited to model. I had wanted a fast photorealistic pencil sketch but I was rusty and the time was too short. I had last done life art about a decade or more ago. I was forced to develop new techniques involving ink and pencils on the way. All in all, a hurried but interesting experience.

I had also to sit nearer as my eyesight was not as good as before.
