This past month, one of our master artists we are learning from, on Let’s Face It 2018, is Nicolai Fechin. He was an amazing Russian artist, and his portraits are beautiful! I love the looseness of his brush work, and I was trying to learn from him, as I worked on this portrait. I used a simple color palette, much like he did in his oil portraits. This is so much different from my usual colorful portraits. It’s all about the simple brush strokes here.
This painting is now on my Daily Paintwork gallery as an online auction. Here’s the link, for more information.
