Reviews

"Artist Kay's book vibrantly showcases the work practices of an ever-expanding international community of artists. She launched a "portrait party," via social media, where artists take turns sitting for each other's portraits. Readers will not find any step-by-step exercises here. Instead, the book is comprised almost entirely of hundreds of examples from the portrait party group's vigorous creativity over five years. Examples are accompanied by artists' comments about their choices and are grouped in chapters by media, style, or theme, with additional sections on featured artists and general insights about portraiture. VERDICT Unconventional in its approach and organization, this volume will capture the imagination of readers of all skill levels."
