14 Jan David Fairrington, portrait demo
Tuesday, January 24, 7 PM
at the RAA Gallery and Art Center.
Guest Artist, David Fairrington, will be doing a portrait demo in oil from a photo. Fairrington says, “I will talk about using photos, how to take them and what to look for in the photo as you paint.”
Fairrington was named a “Master Artist” by International Artist Magazine for his ability to capture and portray personality in his portrait paintings. He is one of a few artists who have been selected as one which officials in the Pentagon and other government services can select for their official portrait. After serving as an “Army Combat Artist”, he opened his own design studio where, in addition to portraits, he made movie posters for all the large movie studios. Fairrington also paints still life – winning First Place in the National Orange Show 2010 All-California Juried Art Exhibition for his still-life of an orange.
