Copying a Sargent by Paul DuSold

In this demonstration, artist Paul DuSold executes a copy of John Singer Sargent’s dashing portrait of William Merritt Chase. This demonstration is a very informative recreation of Sargent’s very direct and bold painting method. The painting marches forward with bravura execution; each stroke of the brush is decisive and descriptive.

Also available in DVD via the Combo Pack, below.

In this video Paul DuSold demonstrates a procedure for painting a portrait. Emphasis is placed on seeing and mixing color in terms of two key fundamentals: value, meaning lights and darks and color in terms of temperature, meaning warm and cool. No matter what the subject or the palette, these two issues must be addressed whenever we paint. The procedure in this demonstration is designed to focus on these fundamentals.
