DEMO: Huihan Liu Portrait Painting

There's more than one way to get to San Francisco! I love watching oil painting demonstrations because after you've done a few portraits, or a few demos, you can really get in the head of the painter. Sometimes it's just personal taste, and sometimes I find I've been doing stuff in a less than efficient way.

Do they block in the whole figure? Start from one key point? Paint light to dark, or dark to light? Block in with one color? Draw in a guide or just go for it? How do they handle mid tones? All these questions and more...
