I have been going through my old workshop notes and have decided to periodically upload some of my workshop and demo photos and notes.
demo and workshop. Peggy not only was one of the judges during the Southern California-American Society of Portrait Artists portrait show in 2003, but accepted my invitation to hold a one week portrait workshop. I missed a lot during the workshop thanks to a nasty kidney stone attack, but still learned a great deal from Peggy.
Peggy demonstrated her sight size technique.
