Realistic Portraits by Melissa Cooke


Realistic Portraits by Melissa Cooke

“Specializing in graphite on paper, her work investigates the relationship between photography, performance and drawing in portraiture. Melissa Cooke ‘s drawings are made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material.”

    1. T’es géniale V! Je suis très heureuse d’avoir eu la chance de tomber sur des gens de qualité comme toi :-). Si je peux te rendre service à mon tour, saches que tu peux compter sur moi.


Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
