Brush Strokes full of Emotion, a look at Joseph Lee

Self-taught Painter Joseph Lee is creating portraits full of emotion primarily out of simple brush strokes. He pays close attention to detail when it comes to his color choices and what part of the face to leave unmasked. Sometimes he will leave exposed a detailed nose, eye, or ear while sometimes covering the face altogether.

Each portrait he makes comes with its own feeling, he does this by the position of the face. With a face looking directly toward the viewer you get a sense of confidence. While if the face is looking down you feel a sense of sadness or shame. Each color palette he uses pairs nicely with each emotion. It can’t go without mentioning how satisfying it is to see the thick brush strokes up close in detail.
