The expression of this young woman shows wisdom beyond her years, so I found the title "Wisdom" to be quite fitting. I used a simple palette of colors in mostly earth tones with a lovely blue used for the background and also mixed in subtle areas of shadow and highlight.

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.
