Portrait Society of America Conference (Day One)

I've just returned from Philadelphia where I attended the  Portrait Society of America's "Art of the Portrait" conference along with 700 professional and aspiring artists.  The meeting began Thursday evening with a "face-off", where 15 artists painted 5 different models in a little over 2 hours.  Below are photos of a few of the artists who participated.

Tony Pro, Michelle Dunaway and John Ennis

Mary Whyte and Rose Frantzen

Robert Liberace

We voted on our favorite face-off painting and the winner did a demo for the attendees on Saturday.  My next post will be about Friday's events.
