Filmed at David Leffel Studio.
Watch David A Leffel paint a portrait of fellow artist Zhiwei Tu to completion without interruption. Tu’s wife Danni spontaneously captured this historical moment from start to finish, creating a unique DVD that is not a demonstration but rare footage of the last painting done in his old studio in Taos before remodeling. We see stroke by stroke how he deals with the size and placement of his subject, the block-in, the subsequent lay-in of color and the final touches. Except for a brief introduction to set the stage, David does not answer any questions or speak about the process; the painting speaks for itself. 1 Hour, 15 minutes.
