Aldo Balding Demo

Aldo Balding hails from Kingston Surrey, England. I first heard of him in 2003 when he burst onto the Strokes of Genius portrait artist forum, and declared the American artists to be "absurd" for their excessive flattery of their sitters.

He was right, of course, but made few friends in the process.

A skilled portraitist, his website, and his blog chronical his ongoing quest for honesty in portraiture.

Here's a recent demo he posted on WetCanvas.

Thanks to A B Alding (I'm not kidding) for submitting this oil portrait demo. :)

UPDATE: Here's another one by Aldo

this guy shouldn't make fun of american's for flattering their models. his portraits on his web site are horrible. instead of worrying out flattering a model he should concentrate on learning how to draw.
