Giant dabs of thick oil paint captured as hyperrealist coloured pencil drawings

Australian artist Cj Hendry, recreates the appearance of thick swabs of brightly coloured paint with her hyper-realistic drawings. To achieve the dimensionality and sheen of fresh oil paint she layers dry pigment atop coloured pencil, accurately portraying the liquid medium’s viscosity.

The series, Complimentary Colors, is far different than the artist’s previous style, which for several years had been exclusively black and white. You can view pieces from her past and present, as well as a series of billboard-sized works, on the artist’s Instagram. (via My Modern Met)
