Jane Lafarge Hamill

JaneLafargeHamill

My high school art teacher was ardently against using outlines to define form, his argument being that objects aren’t “outlined” in reality, so we shouldn’t put them into our work.  Since I wanted to write and draw comics at the time, his advice was a bit disconcerting to me. Today however, I finally realized that he was trying to get me to create something that neared the refined and fluid brush strokes found in Jane Lafarge Hamill’s portraits. No outlines here, just incredible, incredible paintings.

    Is Mz. Hamill a student of Kanevsky?

    I’m not sure if their paths have crossed, but I can see some similarities in the way they approach colour and form.

    For a quick reference check out this post from last year:
