My Favourite Illustrators

Jess I discovered through instagram a few years back. What I love about Jessicas work is she creates simple but realistic detail on her female faces but then adds a lot of detail to the bottom half of the painting, the females clothing. Not so much in this piece but in other peices, there are watercolour and ink paintings within the femals garments which gives an intreaging feeling towards her art. I love her use of contrast through out her work but furthermore, I love her skills and technique within the use of watercolour and ink. She will forever influence many of my own paintings. 


When studing art at GCSE I came accross Illustator Leigh Viner during a module and ever since that day she has been one of my all time faviorite illusators. Leigh Viner has infulenced me in all of my drawings I have ever done and even still to this day. What I love about Leigh Viners work is the detial she put in to created of these females faces. Besides this, I love the low tone of colour she uses over most of her creations with a small part of colour which makes the art really stand out.  Lastly I love the textures she uses that bring the image to life and feel more realistic, like the line textures through the hair and eyelashes. 


I discovered Hankinson during my studies at A Level. Sarah Hankinson has also become a personal faviroute of mine. Similar to Viner, I love the way Hankinson adds deail to the female faces. In addition, I love the use of colour and her techniques. She creates a bold divide between light and dark colours but also a contrast of faded and bold pigmintation which creates texture, definition and an allure to the eye.
