Portrait Demonstration Time-lapse Video

A time-lapse video with narration about my process for painting a portrait.

Video by Justin Tennison


  1. Best time-lapse yet, and so informative. You are an incredible painter, James, and I so enjoy your works.

  2. I very much appreciate you posting this, James. Though I don't paint portraits, there was still much to learn from your voice-over and images. For me, the main takeaway was to be less stingy with paint. Your emphasis on cleaning the palette and mixing more paint kept the colors clear. Too often, I try to preserve previous mixtures while creating new ones. No palette is large enough to keep them from colliding...

    1. Thank you, Steve. I'm glad you found it helpful. I DO use a lot of paint and have the art supply bills to prove it!

  3. So enjoyed this video... you are new to me, and I'm glad I found it! Hope to see more of ur videos soon!! Thank you!! ~~D~~ ;~}
