Classical style speed painting of a live model by Jonathan Hardesty

By on Tuesday, 25th October 2011

Hi Everyone, My name is Jonathan Hardesty and I teach and paint for a living. This painting was a quick sketch over a 2 hour period. I did it as a live demo for my online students, but decided to increase the speed by 2000% and put it up here on youtube. I love doing these quick sketches of models because it is a nice departure from the longer, more involved pieces that I send to my gallery. These type of sketches, while not perfect, are fun because you can focus on capturing a person using your first impression.

I paint exclusively from life and you can see the model there at the end taking a look at the painting. You can see more of my work at http://www.jonathanhardesty.com . I teach the classical methods online as well at http://www.classicalartonline.com . I get questions about my materials a lot as well so here is a list:

Palette colors:

(Rembrandt – Ivory Black, Ultramarine Blue, Viridian, Asphaltum, Transparent Oxide Red, Permanent Red Medium, Yellow Ochre Light, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Lemon)

(Gamblin – Alizarin Permanent)

The medium I use is gamsol with about 25-30% poppy oil. I use silver grand prix filbert brushes, and langnickel 5590 sables. My canvas is Claessens Type 13 oil primed.
