Nettie Wakefield…

If you haven’t noticed by the majority of my posts, I am a sucker for portrait art! So today I thought I would shake things up a bit… reversed portrait art! These pencil drawings are by British artist Nettie Wakefield. Wakefield’s work is incredibly detailed, using traditional techniques with a unique perspective. A live demonstration […]

Hsiao-Ron Cheng (again)…

Cheng makes beautiful digital portraits with gorgeously muted colours. I can’t get enough! And if you love Cheng’s art […]

Pascuala Lira…

    Gah! I just adore these paintings! Chilean artist Pascuala Lira creates these beauties.  She paints on traditional surfaces, as well as, pieces of wood (like the floral work above).  I couldn’t find much info on Lira, only that she paints portraits of imaginary people.  Lovely, lovely portraits of imaginary people!  You can see more on […]
