I found this artist on Twitter recently because another artist I'm following liked one of her tweets. I was amazed because I thought it was a digital work but it's actually a painting. She doesn't post much on her gallery because she works on a piece a lot before it's finished, but on her Twitter she posts process photos frequently.
I mainly love her work for the smoothness and detail that she accomplishes. It's an incredible feat to make a painting (usually oil, sometimes acrylic) painting look like a digital one. I also like her style and composition. The colors she uses are sort of ethereal, and the backgrounds and motifs she uses add interest to each piece. I like to paint, but only with acrylic, and I don't particularly like to go into this much detail, so I don't think I could incorporate any of that aspect of her work into mine. I might be able to draw inspiration from her compositions though, as the people are rather static but the detail in their surroundings makes the paintings far from boring. That's something I have struggled with, so I applaud her for doing that so well.
