Whose Brush Stroke Is That?

-By Dan dos Santos


Can you identify each of these 14 Artists simply from their brush handling? They may be living or dead, but each one is very well known. Click on the thumbnails for a hi-resolution detail.

Leave your guesses in the comments section. And for a real challenge, try not to peek at other people's guesses. (No fair answering you IMCers!)

I'll post the answers, and the entire painting, tomorrow.

    2. Are you thinking of Steve Huston? I thought about him for that but I'm not sold either.

    3. Yup, that's the guy! Funny, as I loaded the page to check back, his name came to me suddenly. But yeah, I don't think it's him. I checked out Bruce Jensen's guess (Kent Williams) and that looks a lot closer.
