Josserand’s illustrative style is whimsical and infectious.
Looking through his archives you’ll see very vivid colors, harsh lighting — a style he describes as “phantasmagoric” — that this piece does not represent.
This one, from a trip he took to Japan in 2005, is a good example of his attention to detail, his ability to capture the perspective of an area, and his use of light/dark.
Chao’s style is incredibly realistic. His portraits look almost like photographs with a Photoshop glamour blur turned onto the edges.
The expression on this “unhappy kid” is so well done.
I’m a sucker for marinas, inlets, bays.
Burra was best known for his work depicting the underworld or Harlem in the 1930s.
Great pieces from Güler.
I’ve only recently discovered Hockney, though he’s considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century, and I’m really enjoying his work.
The above piece must have been fun to work on. Reflections are always difficult to master… but reflections around a sphere must be doubly so.
I chose the above piece because I love trolly cars, I love the detail of the street lamp, and I think the front of the trolly says Jameson, which is one of my favorite whiskies.
If you look through his website you’ll find realistic oils of still-life, beautiful abstract art, nudes, and finally this flamenco series.
I chose the above piece because it reminds me very much of the city I work in and yet the way he’s portrayed the otherwise mundane scene is vibrant, interesting, and worthy of conversation. True art.
I chose this piece because it seems inspired both of Dalí and Warhol yet is still all Angeles.
I chose the piece above because of the hard shadows that slice across the fruit. Shadows in watercolor generally get blurred or washed out but not in Krupinski’s work.
It is as if he uses shadows to construct the entire piece and he’s left with a proper representation of where the light is. Reverse photography.
She accomplishes her style using a gravity pour technique and then erasing away the pieces she wants to brighten up.
Her large canvases remind me of Monet’s Water Lilies series. I’d love to see one of these in person.
I’m digging Richard’s style. This painting is from his Splashes of Color series.
I decided to browse around on Ello this morning to find today’s illustration2015 featured painting and I’m glad I did because I found this piece from Zuzia Turek.
I love that Arenhaus used red to light this piece because that is exactly what you’d see at a real observatory — the red light helps keep your pupils dilated to capture as much light as possible.
A loved this little illustration by León that I found on her Instagram and I thought it was the perfect piece to kick off this week’s series which is illustration2015.
What says summertime more than tomatoes in a garden?
