FACE No. 37

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

This was painted for this week's Daily Paintworks challenge.  And a challenge it is!!  Mary Douglas is having everyone paint in rectangles .... yikes!  Each brush stroke should be a different color.  It was tough, but I am pleased with how this turned out and believe me I learned a lot!  Thanks, Mary!

Wishing everyone a safe, fun and
creative holiday week-end!!
And for those of us who watch
college football ........



  1. What a wonderful challenge idea- really like the brushwork here and the look it gave this fellow. Wonderful colors sculpting the face- this might just be my favorite of these. Great job on a tough challenge Linda.
    Oh, :) and Go Dogs!

  2. Your use of tone and color in all your portraits is wonderfully sensitive and subtle!!!

  3. Wow this really turned out great. You have something going with this style. Try it more!

  4. Fascinating work.
    It has been delightful
    to visit your gallery.
