Revalle placed third in South African Portrait Competition 2017
We are proud of our very own portrait artist/teacher, Revalle Beaton, who took 3rd place in the South African Portrait Competition 2017 for her work titled ‘Amon of Philadelphia’.
The South African Portrait Society’s art competition received 200 entries from 100 artists across South Africa. The top 20 Living Portrait Masters were announced on the 2 May by the judging panel, comprising Kara Ross from the Art Renewal Centre and René Snyman.
Artists had to show the realism of a human being and present high technical skills. Their artworks also had to have esthetic value, and the judges looked for the original use of traditional media.
“There was a specific focus on the merit of the artwork and not the content of the piece,” said Liesel Wessels, founder of the society.
