Craig Elliott Portrait Painting Demonstration at APE

Craig Elliott demonstrated a live portrait painting utilizing a live model at the Alternative Press Expo on Sunday, October 14, 2012. This was done at my Flesk Publications booth and ran from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. I took a series of pictures, a few of which I would like to share.

Craig Elliott begins his painting. We filmed the entire demonstration which we will turn into a time-lapse video and share on the Flesk publications website soon.
