Green Girl


(click image to enlarge)

Just for fun I did a very quick copy of a Jack Faragasso painting. The original has a great painterly quality I wanted to try to emulate digitally. I also love the unexpected color choices. It reminds me of something Harley Brown says - that if you get the values right, the eye will accept the unlikeliest colors.

it even looks like you used a pallet knife to spread some of the colors.
this is amazing!

Funny you should say that - the whole thing was blocked in with a "palette knife" brush in Photoshop.

Just found the original on the web: nice job. Great textures. Also trawled some other examples of his work so thanks for the heads-up on a cool artist.

This is a great study! I'm loving what your doing in photoshop. Each painting is better than the last.
