Here are three more faces I painted, aiming at 60 brush strokes.
They are each 6 x 9 inches, oil on canvas paper.
Oh dear, staying at 60 is really difficult when you’re involved in a face! It seems almost mean to not get them to a certain level. Thus, I went slightly over the number of strokes, between 70 and 80 for each one. My family has had fun naming each person and discussing their possible characteristics!
I came across the artist who inspired me about the 40 strokes initially- anneblairbrown.com. I love the color, light and vibrancy of her paintings.
