"Magic in the Finale"
Join us as Debra Richardson demonstrates the techniques she uses in the
completion of a portrait that make it magical, give it life, and give it power.
D.K. Richardson has been a dedicated artist for over 46 years. Although realism has been her focus, the true challenge of her craft is capturing the essence of character beyond photography, the true identity.
Influenced by masters of their craft, such as Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Rubens, and Vermeer, Richardson continually strives to obtain a higher level of proficiency in portraiture.
Dabbling in impressionism and non-representational works, she always returned to her love of realism. Her work is a hybrid of contemporary and classical portraiture.
We hope you'll join us on Sunday, May 26th!___________________________
