I had the privilege of watching Anna Rose Bain paint a demo portrait, at the Trinity Arts Guild (Fort Worth ,Texas) on Monday, last week, (Sep 9th, 2013). She is a master and painted with so much ease, something you can only attain by hard work and putting in the mileage on your brushes. I am hoping to take a workshop with her in the future.
I took the photograph below, using my iPhone and the lighting condition was not the best. The painting was much better than what you see.
