Happy Juneteenth!
June 19, 2024
The Threads algorithm is showing me a bunch of oil and gouache artists painting portraits in this loose style – so I had to try it. Mine isn’t as clean as what I wanted (so many layers as I kept destroying it1 ha!) but I’m pleased with it as a first try!

    I am always fascinated by art that uses unusual colors – like the blue used in this one. I think it turned out well.

      Me too – this was a scary bold step to try! Gah! But i did like it. though she was very very green in layers underneath…LOL
