Portrait Society of America "The Art of the Portrait" 2014 Conference - April 24

Watching the proceedings

After a short flight from Toronto Island Airport via Porter Air, and a quick shuttle ride to our event hotel,  I immediately had the pleasure of observing simultaneous demos from a number of skilled portrait artists. This event, called the "Face-Off" marked the beginning of the exciting annual event, The Art of the Portrait: National Portrait and Figurative Artist's Conference. There were five models from which 15 artists created 2 1/2 hour sketches, which were later auctioned off to benefit The Portrait Society of America's charitable endeavours.
