Son Timur Paints at Beverly McNeil Gallery

Our family of three painters (Daud Akhriev, Timur Akhriev and myself) all admire the brilliant brushwork of Russian painter Nikolai Fechin, but Timur loves him the most. Yesterday Ruth Garren, of Garren Gallery, posted a photo of Timur painting an oil sketch live at the Beverly McNeil Gallery in Birmingham. I thought it was interesting to look at the oil-sketching brushwork of the the two men side by side.
