I enjoyed painting this classic portrait. I was aiming for a slightly retro-style look, perhaps reminiscent of painting and illustration from 60 years ago. I used a linen panel which shows the natural color of the linen. I allowed some of this natural color to show through on the background of the painting; a really nice effect.

Getting to Know J.

Growing up in Southern California, J. Dunster got her start in the art world by selling celebrity portraits to fans - and sometimes even the celebs themselves! She moved on to study drawing, anatomy, and painting at Otis College of Art & Design, and now specializes in oil paintings of portraits, figures and animals. We think she has a special talent for painting furry felines! She paints to find the beauty and nobility in things, capturing emotion, drama and silliness. She says quite a few of her models act surprised by what they see in her portraits, “as if I discovered something more noble or beautiful in them. But it's not a put-on, that *is* what I see in them.” Fun fact: J. is learning Spanish (albeit slowly) by watching Spanish-language soap operas on TV.
