Lena Levin

My next Twitter follower to be permanently enshrined in the infamous Sketchbook Project sketchbook is Lena Levin, or @LenaLevin_paint as she’s known on Twitter.  She’s a fantastic painter with some great influences… from her website:

Van Gogh remains, and will probably remain forever, the single most important painter in my life, with Rembrandt and a much less famous Russian painter, Pavel Filonov, quite close by.

When you see her work, you’ll definitely see those influences, but with a beautiful twist.  A wonderful mix of bold color and confident brush strokes.  And she’s a DOCTOR to boot!  Amazing!

Another attempt at a mashup here.  Her Twitter profile picture, and her color sense and brush work.  Recreating her style is not easy, and you can see I didn’t even come close.  But, as with all the portraits so far, I really enjoyed it.  Thanks for following, Lena!
