This gorgeous painting was completed by Beyond the Brushes member, Siri Brændshøi. She joined Beyond the Brushes in September 2019 and completed this painting after only two and a half months of study!
Siri has no previous painting experience (and actually has a Master's degree in Geology which I find totally amazing!).
She said the most difficult part of this painting was the hair, but wow what a beautiful end result! Because this painting is of her son, I know it will become a cherished heirloom for her family!
When I asked Siri about her overall experience inside Beyond the Brushes, she had this to say...
"I have learned so much in the few months I have been a member of BTB, much more than I had ever dreamt about. I love the through and professional way the education is built up. The quality of the lessons is superb, very well explained! And not to forget the very thorough critique you get on every painting you post! That is exceptional. I love the community, where I learn a lot by watching other members being critiqued. I also enjoy the live monthly events."
You're off to a great start, Siri! I can't wait to see where your skills are in another year!
