The Art of the Portrait Conference in Atlanta is now in the history books. I returned with copious notes and hundreds of photos, some of which I will share over several posts. Meanwhile, you can almost feel like you were there by visiting Underpaintings Magazine, a website belonging to Matthew Innis. There you will find the Competition Winners, paintings from the Face-Off and the artists in action.
Below is the painting that took the highest honor, the Draper Grand Prize, by artist extraordinaire, David Jon Kassan.
A truly masterful work!
