MAG was so excited and honored to have Brian Neher demo his technique in oil portrait painting, Tuesday evening on March 14th. If you missed it, you should be feeling pretty bad. Here are some shots from that phenomenal demo. It was a memorable one.
This was our first MAG meeting downstairs in the MAC studio.

And... here is the portrait at the end of the hour of painting.
Thanks, Brian, for sharing your skillful know-how with us. Visit his web site at brianneher.com where he has videos for sale which further explain his technique. Brian will also be our judge for the MAG Member Competition in May.
