Warren Chang Portrait Painting Demonstration Pictures

Warren Chang gave a free portrait painting demonstration yesterday at the Pacific Grove Art Center in Pacific Grove, CA. Warren took questions during the session providing the viewers with an intimate experience of his approach to painting.

I took pictures throughout the process, which I am sharing here. Jonathan Leveck came with me and we also filmed and recorded sound of his demonstration for a future time-lapse video that we will post on the Flesk Publications website once we get a chance to put it together.
