Portrait Society Conference

Photo by Caleb
I'm at the Portrait Society of America's annual conference in Washington, DC, and was honored yesterday to participate in the Face-Off event, where 15 artists paint three-hour portraits from five models. It was fun to get the oils going again, after painting so much in water media lately. 

Other Face-Off participants included Carol Arnold, Anna Rose Bain, Judith Carducci, Casey Childs, Romel de la Torre, Michelle Dunaway, Max Ginsburg, Quang Ho, Robert Liberace, Ricky Mujica, Teresa Oaxaca, Alicia Ponzio, and Elizabeth Zanzinger.

I shot some time lapse and live video clips, and I'll share those with you on a future post.

I'm happy to see you back into the oils James (being a bit media-biased myself). :^)
Looking forward to seeing those clips. About the format of the Face-Off - did you have 3 hours to paint each of the 5 models, or did you have to squeeze all 5 models into one 3 hour session?

Sounds like you're having a great time. Glad to hear it!
