Lesson by Jane French

Cara, Oil on gessoed MDF board, 9 x 12 ins.

I painted this, using my own photo, after watching lessons by Jane French on Domestika.

She uses a direct approach and a square brush technique. I like her paintings because she uses surprising colors on the skin tones, and yet from a distance they meld in beautifully.

I did not achieve the same colors in the skin tones here. That needs another attempt. I’m happy with the brushwork changes I made.

The picture reminds me of a happy conversation on a pleasant evening with friends.
