Original drawings and paintings by Julie Rhodes

All my Original art is created by hand in pencil, pastel or in paint. My realistic drawing style has developed over many years as an artist.

I enjoy the challenge of hyper realism / photo realism (this means making each drawing as lifelike and ‘believable’ as possible)

My original drawings are not digitally enhanced, they are all painstakingly drawn by hand.

I draw from my own reference photos, sketches and also from my imagination so all  artwork is completely original.

Realism in Art

Realism isn’t about copying a photograph. For my original drawings and paintings I like to work from many reference photos. I also use my sketches and the vision I have in my head for the finished piece therefore creating a unique piece of artwork.

My artwork isn’t usually drawn from one photo. I’m always trying to capture more than that in my artwork, like a moment in time. The light and shade and the slight movement of an animals fur and whiskers.

Planning a drawing

All original drawings and paintings take hours of planning, from the subject and pose through to the background and lighting. Therefore they can take between 80 – 300 hours to complete because of this. They are made up of thousands of small abstract lines and marks capturing the light and texture in the fur and these make up the finished piece. I like to see them as an abstract artwork hidden within realism.

My Work

I hope my work is an accurate representation of nature but furthermore I also want to express something deeper. The viewer can see all the tiny details that often go unnoticed in the moment.

At first you can see a ‘tiger’ but I want to look beyond the subject and see the textures changing through the fur and also the way the light reflects in the eyes.
