I'm definitely going to learn from this one. I love the gestural paintstrokes and how they come together nicely when you step back and take in the painting as a whole. This is just the kind of technique I'm practicing.
this is beautiful, i love the contrast of the areas with all the detail and then the areas that are more sketchy/smudged, it's a really neat effect. and i also really like the moment, like the body language. ^_^
