Award Winning Paintings-Still Life By Portrait Society of America

Enjoy this collection of award winning paintings from the 2016 members-only competition by Portrait Society of America. Competition was held in different categories including portraits, still life, landscape, non-commissioned portraits and commissioned portraits.

I have featured the still-life painting category here. The contest had a great participation with more than 1800 entries. Almost all the works were above the standard bar. The judgement in the still-life section was quite tough with such quality entries. The winners were selected by the jury team based on several factors. The subject, presentation, color values and technique was given special importance during the judgement.
