FOMO Christmas art

Artist: Tanya Jaceglav
Title: FOMO Christmas
Media: Oil
Category: Painting
Judges' comments: A very contemporary portrait depicting a true-to-life scene. The work has a deceptively simply quality, that is hard to achieve and do well. The media requires quick and confident brushwork. Beauty lies in those subtle lines.

Theseus artwork
