Artist Research- Sophie Peanut

This artist was suggested to me by my tutor to look into her style of work and look to see how her techniques are when coming to drawing portraits and to take inspiration from her art work.

Once I searched up this artists name I was amazed, I loved her style of work from the first moment I saw it, her work is so colourful and I love the way her work is cartoon form in some way yet her work still strongly represents the person she is creating through art work. I think her work is fun and represents a less serious look on the world with her fun bright colours and words she jots on the bottom of her portraits.

As shown on this picture above her work is fun and lets out a little lightened approach on some strong topics. Her portraits are fun and I like the way her tones and lighting are still relevant in her art work. The way she represents shadows and lighting on her work is very interesting as it’s like blocks of colours it’s not necessarily blended together it’s just different types of block colour which make the different tones noticeable. Her work doesn’t have too much facial detail yet I think it makes the piece more interesting with the  simplistic look.

All in all I love the style of this artists work and has inspired me to try different types of tonal work and to experiment more with my style to see what works for me, it also has shown me that you don’t have to go full detail and tonal to make an effective portrait and it doesn’t have to look exactly like or a detailed look of the person it can be fun and still be just as effective.
