Richard Schmid Demo

Here's a scene from the Richard Schmid demo from last month,
the handsome model is Clayton Beck III ,
a former student of the artist,
and currently a popular teacher both here in Chicago
and around the country.

Reportedly, this portrait is finished -
except for a few last minute touch-ups applied the next day.

(The demo raised about $4,000 for the Academy,
all of it being applied
to repair the soffit below the northern
edge of the roof.)

By the way,
here's another depiction of Clayton,
done, presumably, when the two artists
spent a day painting landscapes together.
