aaronnagel if you're not already doing it, make sure to checkout @paintguide -- my good bud @shawndbarber is manning the controls for the next week, posting his favorite artists and inspiration. he is a fantastic artist and really knows his shit-- he has also probably taught me more about painting and the creative process than anybody, and continues to show me amazing artists I've never heard of. check it out!

aaronnagel final shot of "julia in motion", 16" x 20", oil on linen panel. this is going to @redletter1 for their 10th anniversary group show - opening June 6th w/ @redletter1 @jeffsrsic @shawndbarber @erikjonesart and others. this one was a bit of an experiment, as I am trying to work on painting facial features a little looser. I tend to autopilot when painting and get caught up in details, so I used a slightly blurry reference photo to see what the outcome would be. special thank you to @julidonut yet again for modeling. #oilonlinen 2w
