I recently did a workshop at the Scottsdale School for Artists – a figurative oil painting workshop with Joseph Larusso.
Larusso has a very loose, unblended style to his portraits – when you look at them up close, they look like strips or sections of color just laid down, side-by-side. Yet viewed from a distance, they look blended and realistic.
I think this is because of his very unique color palette and you can see exactly what I mean in this video here:
