"You want me to paint a portrait in one minute," I exclaimed to Paul. He admitted that most artists he previously filmed for this task failed miserably. The worst case scenario was that the video would never be published. I can live without the video being published, but found to my surprise that it was!
This video is just hilarious. The person in the portrait looks like no one I know. The painting can be considered an "underpainting," as in the first layer of paint on a canvas. Some traditional painters use this technique of underpainting to begin their art works, no matter the subject. For me, this painting is just the beginning of a portrait and is in no way finished in a minute or so. It will soon, if not already, be covered up with another painting (unless you wish to purchase it, ha-ha).
