This oil painting by Chantelle McIntyre (S6) was created by photoshopping images of her and doll faces together, the image is then printed out over a series of A4 pages which are then ripped into pieces and glued onto larger card to create a textured image. Chantelle then painted over the top of the print outs which sounds like a cheat, but it’s incredibly difficult to colour match and avoid making mistakes. It really just cuts out the time wasted on scaling up and drawing out.
When you see Monica S’s (S6/OLSP) work it just makes you want to take all your pencils and paints and throw them in the bin. Don’t!!! There’s only one way of being this good… practice. Her paintings are absolutely exquisite. She has been working on a series of portraits for her Adv. Higher course. Taught by Mr Kelly (the PT of OLSP and my boss), she has been focusing on getting an element of photo realism along with a little touch of Impressionism. These few paintings of her sister are just a small glimpse into her talent. I worked with her in developing her digital portfolio and will publish it here as soon as I get a chance.
