Illuxcon 4, an oils demonstration

One of the most intense experiences at Illuxcon was John Harris’s demonstration in the auditorium. He’d been asked to show how he begins a new painting in oils, and this was filmed and shown live on the large screen. The audience were invited to offer suggestions once the initial image had taken shape, and in just an hour and a half he produced this painting. It’s not finished, of course, but under the circumstances, and with all that scrutiny, I think it’s quite an achievement.
