Art & Photography

Back in 2013, HonestlyWTF introduced me to the concept of double exposure photography, via the incredible works of Oriol Angrill Jordà. In Jordà’s series blendscapes, he combines watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil and graphite to create mesmerizing portraits that perfectly mimic the style photography. Recently, I revisited Jordà’s work to use as inspiration for my visual arts class at school, inspiring this piece along the way:

 

  Although the final piece simply does not compare to Jordà’s masterful combination of hyper realistic sketches and perfectly placed paint (goals, amirite), experimenting with different media offers a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with a medium, experiment with techniques, and figure out what you can do to tie different components together into one visually appealing image.

Art & Photography, Loves

While discussing what to do in art class with a friend, we couldn’t help but want to incorporate double exposure photography into our final pieces. But alas, we had signed up for Art Design, not Art Photography [and the darn school board wouldn’t let us choose both] so we struggled to see how we could mimic the hazy, tumblr-like layers of double exposure photography on a canvas.
