April 2022 Meeting: Portraiture Demo by Kate Blue

Kate Blue is a Sacramento figurative painter that has been working lately in portraiture.   Her portrait of Sunny – a young woman in cat ears won the Florence Ferrario Award in the Bold Expressions 2021 competition. This portrait was in direct response to taking a class with David Kassan, a national portrait artist well known for his realistic works.
