Principle Gallery Face Off - Round II

The Face Off- Round II went off without a hitch and a good time was had by all. I have to say thank you to my fellow artists who helped me settle my nerves so that I could PAINT!

And a big thank you to Michele, Clint, Julia, Jessica and Chris, who kept everything running incredibly smoothly. You guys are the best.

Here is a pictorial review for your enjoyment! Photos courtesy of Principle Gallery

Cindy's and Mia's model, fellow Women Painting Women: (R)evolution artist,  Catherine Prescott.

It was tricky to get good light on the paintings and not have it wash out the drama on the model so I resorted to a clamp on light.

Final efforts, left to right, Mia Bergeron, Cindy Procious, Terry Strickland and Rachel Constantine.

If you've been following the blog you know that I've been posting some of my alla prima practice sessions. I was really happy that I had practiced and even then it was so easy to be distracted by the crowd, noise and unfamiliar conditions. It was a great "outside my comfort zone" learning experience.

All of these artists and models, are just a few of the 32 artists that will have work in the WPW:(R)evolution show later this month, at Principle Gallery. The opening is Friday, Sept. 20, 2013, 6:30-9:00pm. We'll all be in town, so if you missed the Face-Off don't miss this show. Stop by and say hey!
