“Inside Joke”

I love painting skin tones and hair, but I particularly enjoy painting African-American portraits. There are so many rich nuances of hue and shade that make the process a joy to discover.

    Terry, your joy in discovering those wonderful colors really shows. You paint glasses and teeth so well which I think would be a challenge. Loving these recent pieces!

    Brilliant and those teeth! Why do many say not to paint them when they can look this good?

      Thanks, Lorraine. I was always told the same thing! I try to negative paint the teeth, painting the shapes around them; then the teeth emerge all by themselves.
