Hey everyone, I know its been awhile but I’m back! I have definitely been taking advantage of summer break and working on some stuff for this blog. However now that its been really hot and the air conditioner is dead I thought it was a perfect time to start blogging again! I also came across some really cool paintings so I really had no excuse. I find that lately I’ve really been drawn to realism and I’ve probably mentioned that before but its something that I’m drawn to.
I feel like I’m still finding out my own style as an artist and I love the look of a realistic painting or drawing. In fact I kind of freaked out recently because after what seems like years I finally feel I perfected the eye. Yes I am that obsessed. I won’t talk too much about that though since that is for a later post! Anyway I thought that these paintings had a really nice look to them and they captured that reality along with something else I can’t really put my finger on. I also appreciate how these still have a painting aspect to them, they don’t look like a photograph which is okay but I find this work stands out a bit more because it doesn’t try to be something else.These paintings were created by Claire Duguid and I think they are really nicely done. It always amazes me how you can’t see the paintbrush strokes but I guess practice makes perfect! Including on here are my favorites but I put a link to the others as well. I hope you guys enjoyed this; until next time!
