Portrait Sketch Competition Kicks Off!

And so it begins... the competitors are at their easels, the model on his stand, and the timer ticking. The fast-paced nature of the quick sketch, coupled with the competitive factor of the event, could make the room a stressful space -- fortunately, we have a group of wise-cracking artists from around the US that keep the energy high.

Look out for today's portraits, which will be posted late this evening on our Facebook page. The competitors will be labelled by their pseudonyms, and their identities revealed Thursday night.
