Strokes of Genius 9- Jonathan- Ken Tiessen

I’m honored and thrilled that my Pastel portrait of “Jonathan” was chosen to be included in "Strokes of Genius 9: The Best of Drawing - Creative Discoveries," from North Light Books.

Each of the 140 works in this beautiful collection is accompanied by some of artist's personal thoughts and revelations in the process. It will be released in late October in your local bookstore and is very reasonably priced at about $40.

Here is my portrait and the cover of the book- an e-version is available too. You can pre-order the book online at: https://www.northlightshop.com/strok...genius-9-r0821

Thank you Esther! I'm painting a good deal with oils right now in Landscape, and will soon apply that experience into portrait work- I appreciate your kind comments!
