Quick post to show you a couple of demos at the Portrait Society convention here in Atlanta earlier today.
Here is a watercolor sketch I did of Face-Off champion Jeffrey Hein painting Kate Stone on the main stage. Jeffrey said, "Painting is a long hike to paradise," meaning that it often takes a lot of steady, difficult, and unpleasant toil to arrive at a joyful result.
Later I had the honor of sitting as the model for Judith Carducci as she did a two-and-a-half hour portrait in pastels. She charmed the audience with limericks and solid painting advice as she worked. It was fun to be on the other side of the easel. Thanks, Judy!
