Photorealistic Pastel Drawings On Boards Of Wood


I look up to pastel painters like Degas and pioneer photorealists like Audrey Flack, Roberto Bernadi (who paints realistic still life works) and, recently, Julian Beever, who influenced me to start drawing anamorphic works. I always love to draw realistic art or artworks that tease the eyes and the brain. By working on wood, it gives me a lot of dimension and ideas to create something close to reality and it works really well with pastels, too. I started to experiment on wood some years back with mainly portraits as my subject before going further with a different concept. I started to think of ideas and draw things that we could see ‘happening’ on a piece of wood, so the very first idea that struck me was the dripping effect. That was my first anamorphic work. I got a good response when i posted on my Instagram [@ivanhooart], and this gave me the confidence and motivation to continue with this concept.
