Artist Talk "How a Portrait is Commissioned"

I gave an artist talk yesterday on "How a Portrait is Commissioned and Painted" to a great group of artists from several local art groups. Unfortunately my travel camera was on the blink (I suspect a few skateboarding/videotaping boys dropped it one too many times, but so far no one's fessing up!) so no pictures taken there.

The talk included a slide presentation illustrating the painting process, several before/after slides showing some of the problem-solving involved in commissioned work and past portraits I have completed. I included a handout (shown here) and notecards for everyone to take with them.

It was a fun group, about 28 in all. They were very attentive and asked so many great questions.
