Oil Sketch by Ted Minoff, 2012.
Apply to enter our Portrait Sketch Competition by this Monday, July 1! Over 100 applications have been requested but so far twenty actual applications have been received. How many of you will hold out until late Sunday night? We shall see. Email in your application by early Tuesday morning and it will be accepted.

For those of you who missed the earlier post about our August Portrait Sketch Competition, here is a summary:

Ten finalists selected from online applications (due Monday) will paint six different portraits in three days at GCA in New York. The dates are August 27 - 29 (Tuesday - Thursday).  The participants will paint together in the same studio from the same model -- a live event modeled after the concours of the 19th century. Two single-session, four-hour portraits will be painted each day; 9am-1pm and 2-6pm. The six portraits will be judged as a group. First place prize is $1,000 and Second Place is $500. There is no application fee.
