2010 Portrait Society Face-Offby Matthew Innis |
On the opening night, 15 artists painted simultaneously, three each to a model. Â These were the pieces after approximately 2 1/2 hours. The paintings go to auction, and the artist with the most popular piece gave a painting demonstration on Saturday morning.

fascinating to see everyone re-interpret a face from their angle, emotional state or ethnic extraction.
Interesting that a lot of these talented painters struggle with an alla prima approach.
Thanks for posting these – it’s fun to see them all together. (that’s me painted by Clayton, Tony and Rob)
Can’t tell you how much I appreciate you sharing these! Maybe someday I don’t have to experience via Internet and I enjoy your blog thanks so much!
Thanks for posting – I was in attendance as well and was planning to post these, but you have done such an excellent job I think I will just direct people here!
