Colour Inspiration: Sophie Derrick

content_plain-magazine-sophie-derrick-06

British artist Sophie Derrick blurs the lines between photography and painting to create multi-layered portraits, by painting directly on her skin, photographing the results, then painting over the photograph again.

The rich, thick layers of paint and bright bold colours create depth and question the traditional concept of portrait painting.
