I love a painting where you can see the brushstroke. To me that is the very soul of the painting. The joy of looking at something hand made. However, young skin and brushstrokes are mortal enemies. Brushstrokes make the subject look older.
This is an example of visible brushstrokes yet you feel the youth of the subject.

Artist: Malcom Liepke.
