Sarah Harvey’s Swimming Pool Paintings
What might seem to be blurry photos taken in the pool are actually paintings done by Sarah Harvey of herself enjoying a dip. Based on the photographs taken by a third party; Sarah then paints herself as seen in the photos, swimming in the cool blue-green waters often obscured by the ripples and the light.
Pakayla Biehn takes photorealistic painting to a whole new level in her series Double Exposure.
About the project:
Building upon the double exposure theme of her previous works, Pakayla uses oil paint on canvas to present dream-like transfiguration of the natural world. The skill and refined beauty of her paintings enlists a realist style that recalls the delicacy, formality, and craftsmanship of old master techniques. She combines the cultivation of the portrait with a very intimate and vibrant observation of nature.
